There is something intriguing to me of painting mountains and wildflowers. I think it's the contrast of such strength and ruggedness of the huge mountains dwelling with such beauty and delicacy of the delicate wildflowers. I hope you enjoy this as much as I enjoyed painting it. ~ Connie

These are lovely mountain wildflowers that have grown under the birches and pines in the rugged Colorado Mountains. They are full of joyous and vibrant colors. I hope you enjoy this painting as much as I enjoyed painting it. ~ Connie

I love peaceful settings. It seems to bring peace to my soul and spirit... my inner most being. Grace is not something you earn. Wages we earn by our hard work and we are therefore justly rewarded. Grace is that "unmerited favor from God" many times coming in unexpected ways. Look for it today. It is a gift.... it is a blessing!
"Grace be to you, and peace from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ. Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ.." ~ Ephesians 1:2-3

"Sunset at the Grand Tetons" ~ 36"x24" A Painting a Day Hudson River School Landscapes by Connie Tom
This work pictures an early evening sunset over the Grand Tetons Mountain Range, located in Wyoming. The highlights from the sun are glinting from the peaks of the mountains. The majestic mountains are doubly beautiful as they are reflecting in Jackson Lake. Enjoy!
