Sawtooth Mountains in Spring — Black Ink Paintings

In early April we took a day drive through the Sawtooth mountains in West-Central Idaho. It was a glorious day with breathtaking views and mild shirtsleeve weather. I took an abundance of pictures and back at my studio used them as inspiration for a series of black ink paintings shown to you below.
