I am inspired to paint by Bob Ross but the inspiration for the landscape comes from my experiences. This is a lake shore with two mountains in the background as the sun is setting. This isn’t one place that I have been to, but it is multiple places actually. The mountains are inspired by the mountains I saw when I went to Sedona, Arizona for my 14th birthday. The lake is inspired by the lake my siblings and I used to go to swim in during summer that was in the back of our old 20-acre backyard that was overgrown with the forest all around. I created this over the boring winter break where I tried to recreate my fun family experiences into one picture.
