This is painted from a photo I took from the South Boulder Creek Trail back in the mid- to late 90’s. My husband and I got up early on a Saturday morning with danishes and a thermos of hot tea to hike and have breakfast somewhere along the trail.

This is a portrait of my dad’s family. Included are my dad, my grandmother, and my uncle. My grandfather is the photographer and is also included by means of his shadow on the bottom edge of the canvas.
