The captivating view of Emerald Bay had me standing in awe of its peacefulness and tranquility so that it wasn't long before I knew it had to be painted. It was painted in May and the snow was just starting to recede, revealing the beautiful green in the trees and of course the 'emerald' of the bay as the center of attention with lighting of the mid-afternoon. This was a painting where minute detail was an absolute requirement to truly represent this incredible sight on canvas. Later, my family and I moved to Lake Tahoe and we were able to continually experience all the beauty that was before us.
