Notes Oil on canvas painting depicting Trick Falls in Glacier National Park. The painting depicts a blue sky covered with numerous stratocumulus clouds. Positioned, in the background, but approximately in the center of the canvas is a large mountain, which appears to have some snow. In front of the large mountain is a waterfall, probably Trick Falls. This fall is surrounded, on both sides, by large rock formations. Interspersed between the rocks surrounding the falls are trees, shrubs and general greenery. At the base of the falls are more large rocks, which continue on, lining the bank of the river. Further ahead, in the foreground, in the river are a couple small rapids and white caps. At each section of rapids / white caps are more large rocks / boulders. The water has a definite green tone. The artists signature can be found in the proper bottom left corner.
