LISABONGZEE Island Dream Life

Although this is not one of my typical “tropical style” paintings, we recently visited the Grand Tetons, and I was inspired to paint one of the rustic barns that I had photographed.

An original 11x14 palette knife oil painting, titled
“Still Standing Before The Grand”.

A trip to Grand Teton National Park wouldn’t be complete without a trek down “Mormon Row”. On an old dusty dirt road lie the weathered farm buildings that have withstood the elements for over 100 years. The farmland in this area was homesteaded by predominantly Mormon settlers in the early 1900’s but the land was then purchased by the Rockefellers and given over to the Park Service. The farm homes and barns still stand today as they were over a century ago, and make for wonderful photographs and paintings!!
