The water flowing through Glacier National Park in Montana is truly special…absolutely magical. It is, you see, aqua. Clear, bright, beautiful aqua. A beautiful flowing jewel. The rivers and creeks are fed by the mountains as they give up their bounty of snow each summer. The glacial till carried down the mountains and deposited in McDonald and Avalanche Creeks causes the otherworldly blue sparkle of the waters.
Nowhere in the Park are the waters more beautiful than along the Trail of the Cedars where Avalanche Creek sidles up to the boardwalk, allowing visitors a peek into the deep, chiseled gorge. The photo that became my Cold Waters mandala was taken right there at a time of relatively low, still water. A very special piece that celebrates this gift of the mountains.
Enjoy this piece as a intricately detailed 10″ x 10″ giclee print on fine watercolor paper, beautifully prepared in a matte black wood frame with round-cut white mat and UV acrylic glazing. The finished size is approximately 12″ x 12″, including the frame; big enough to allow you to dive in and really enjoy all the fine detail of the mandala. If you plan to use or gift this mandala as a mediation piece, this is a good size. A copy of the original photo and the story of the piece are included on the back.
