The wildflowers of Wyoming are in bloom!

Several weeks ago, I spent a few days hiking and photographing wildflowers in Wyoming.  I couldn’t have picked a better time as the wildflowers were in full bloom.  Field upon field of white, purple, red and gold glowed against the lush green grass.  It was overwhelming.

While the sun didn’t want to cooperate, I was able to return home and paint these luminous red paintbrushes against a field of golden sunflowers.

Everywhere I turned, there were more flowers and breathtaking scenes. I even saw a huge bull moose eating in the bushes not far from the road.

Hiking into the Snowy Range, there were granite peaks still covered with snow reflected in the lakes, and fields of flowers calling me further into the mountains.

I didn’t want to leave.
