A few months ago Robin, one of our beloved Innkeepers, began sharing her artwork at the Inn. She occasionally switches out the selection, based on the season or the number of paintings that found happy homes with guests.
Over the weekend, she put up gorgeous new watercolors that I have to share with you! Each landscape is filled with depictions of nature around the Grand Tetons and Yellowstone National Park. For two weeks, Robin was given a cabin to paint the beauty around her. As Robin said, “The grandeur of the Tetons and the magnificence of the animals who live there are hard to describe in words… so I used watercolor.”
Inspired by the tales of the 1988 “Summer of Fire,” some of the paintings have an eerie orange tint in the background, enhancing the natural colors of the fur. A few of the paintings are serene in color composition, with mountains and sky and water seamlessly flowing into each other to create a sense of calm (like the one to the right). The combination of both in the same display creates a fabulous sense of life and color and how the two are connected.
If you would like to see the elk deer, moose, bears, and bison meandering through the hallway in beautiful watercolor, reserve an autumn getaway at Lookout Point. You can browse the gallery while you enjoy the Innkeeper’s Reception in the afternoon, with wine, dessert, and light appetizer in hand.
