Journal – May 15, 2013

The weather changes rapidly in the high elevations of the Cascades, and even more so at Crater Lake National Park.  What was meant to be a leisurely weekend camping/painting trip became a blustery snow storm that left three feet of snow on the ground before morning.  When I arrived earlier in the day, I set up my camp and then began my drive to the lake.  The roads were steep, with switch backs etched on the landscape on my way to the entrance of the caldera.  The road finally levels out along side of the rim where I parked.

I was impressed by how steep the tureen was from where I stood on the rim of the crate and found it challenging to set up my easel.  This lake has the distinction of being the deepest, clearest lake in the world.  In the center of the lake a magnificent mountain called Wizard Island marks the centerpiece of my painting.   Amazed, I looked into the bottomless depths of the lake from the ridge of the canyon.  I noticed that Hemlocks lace the rim of the lake’s ridges making great shapes to add interest to the astounding colors in the scene, vivid yellow sulfur transitioning to pink, with sienna rocks that are part of the Hoodoos or Totems that guard this Sapphire Lake.

Then,  unpredictably, the weather turned from a clear day to an instant snowstorm. I scrambled to make color notations on my painting while the snow blinded my view.  Quickly, I packed my painting gear, jumped in my car, hurried back to my camp, and in the safety of my trailer – after  I had a cup of tea, I carefully examined my sketch and reflected in amazement, “Still waters do run deep.”

Artist’s Comments

For me, Yellowstone is the most magical of all the National Parks.  Over the past thirty years, I have returned to visit this park 17 times, and it always is spectacular to see it again.  I have seen  Yellowstone in it’s splendor, burnt to the ground and then, watched as it rejuvenated itself.  After the last big fires, our painting group was the only visitors allowed in the park.  We walked along the board walks alone.  And I have seen it filled with thousands of visitors; so many that moving in the park became impossible and unbearable.
But, at the lodge, time never changes.  When I am here, I feel like I return to an earlier time when artists like Thomas Moran painted its geyers and vistas, and visitors arrived by horse and buggy.  Even today, Moran’s paintings grace the white house walls, reminding visitors of the historical legacy that artists and naturalists  left for all Americans to enjoy for generations to come.  When I am in Yellowstone, I find myself transported back into the early days and history of the park, and have the sense that I am pleasantly lost, “Somewhere in Time.”

Canvas with pen by the Artist LR, On the Wings of an Osprey, Yosemite NP

Artist’s Comment

While I was painting plein air on the Yosemite valley floor, I noticed an Osprey soaring along the top edge of the valley swooping down over the Merced river with her talons extended, catching an unexpected fish, and then returning back up to her nest. I was curious about where this Osprey’s nest was located, and since I was familiar with the hidden trails that the Modoc Indian tribe who inhabited this valley once used to travel up to the top of the ridge of the canyon. I made my way without a trail to where I witnessed the Osprey returning to her nest with her catch. Before she landed, I walked at eye level with the Osprey as if I were part of her wing, soaring with the updrafts that lifted her. As I continued to follow her, a mother bear stopped me in my tracks and out of respect for the bear  and not disturb her more, I retreated and went back down the mountain.
Nature is magical, and painting nature is a gift of life.

Lower Left – Baumann GV Date Completed: 2014

Masterpiece C Pro, Hand written by the Artist, Illusion of Grandeur, Mt. Shasta, Stefan Baumann, 2014

Artist’s Comment

This paintng represents a style of painting called Romantic Realism, a truly American way of seeing and painting the Grand American landscape. Early painters who traveled west like Albert Bierstadt, Fredric Church and Thomas Moran wanted to see if the grand landscapes that were written about by Lewis and Clark actually existed. These paintings captured the vast and magnificent scenes of magical places in the west so that people in the east could view what they were unable to see any other way. The Hudson River School style of painting did not just render the landscape geographically accurate; but instead, these artists painted from their hearts and represented the feelings they had of actually being at the scene with all the awe and wonder of seeing the Grand Canyon, Yosemite and other extraordinary vistas for the first time.
This painting of Mount Shasta is painted from my heart and imagination. I was inspired one summer evening when I traveled by Mount Shasta when the moon revealed herself through overcast clouds enhanced by colors of the setting sun.
Many of the vistas and grand views that I have painted while exploring are embelished by my imagination making them Grand Illusions of the actual scenes of nature and life.
