Notes In this small oil painting, three deer come down to the lake's edge at day's end. In the background, the setting sun lights up the craggy peaks of the distant Continental Divide, casting a reflection in the placid water far below. Here, Charlie captures nature at its most serene, clearly illustrating the restorative value that time spent in Glacier offered the Russells and their many visitors.
