Original Creation

Kern's river valley (original artist Albert Bierstadt)

flippergirlpaints 22 Jun 2022

11x14 "recreation" of a painting done by Albert Bierstadt in 1871. When my mother in law passed away in 2020 I acquired a print on canvas board (from the 1960s) by Albert Bierstadt titled Yosemite valley. I had always admired that painting and after getting it, I researched some about him and looked at some of his other works. I was especially attracted to this one and decided to give it a try! I have never painted another artist's work- except for Bob's. My goal was not to produce an exact copy lol - but to recreate its essence in my own version. The horses becoming larger and looking more up close was an accident, but I like it that way. The original's size was 30"x50" I believe. Mine took 2 days to complete and his probably took months! It was great to do a landscape after a couple of pets, and I am pleased at the final result. Original posted in thumbnail.
