Inspired by the small towns in Norway and the fantastic countryside. Glacial River highlights this village sitting along the banks of a glacial river. These rivers are fed by the glaciers making the water a grayish blue. I was told the gray tints were the result of the tiny stone debris in the water because of the pounding of these fast moving rivers over rock. I haven't researched to confirm this, but it is quite believable since the glacial rivers were ferocious in their strength. The white caps shown in the paper are the result of the fast moving water.  For those wondering, there is no waterfall, just the love of drips in my paintings.

If you have ever been to Scandinavia you may have noticed that the majority of houses are painted either red or gold. Roofs are often red as well. So you are not seeing artistic license in this village scene, the houses are true to their original colors.

I not only loved the beauty of these villages, but also the majesty of the surrounding mountains and this fantastic river. If you have ever been to Scandinavia, I hope my painting brings back great memories of these pristine countries. 

* The image wraps around the edge of the painting, so a frame is not required.
