North Country Shores
by Stephen Lyman
Through years of study and exploration,
Stephen Lyman discovered his calling: to paint the wilderness with passion and commitment. Through his paintings you, too, can travel deep into the woods, find serenity at the water’s edge and feel completely at home in the wild. North Country Shores, part of a series the artist referred to as “light in the wilderness,” embodies three of his favorite landscape subjects: water, light and wildlife. “The strong wind is coming off the lake right into your face, so you can imagine yourself standing there, your hair blowing back, being washed over by all this light, beauty and freshness,” said the artist. “The whole feeling I wanted to paint was golden, fresh, pristine, windblown purity.” Clear, cold and suffused with golden light, this spectacular, late winter afternoon vista is accented by the bald eagle poised in flight with a fresh catch in its claws.

Rufus Hummingbird and Mountain Hemlock (top)
by Stephen Lyman
The Wildflower Suite was a new approach to portraying wilderness for
Stephen Lyman. It was four, close-up views that allowed us to appreciate
the intricacy of tiny things we might otherwise miss. Lyman chose four
very different plants and then added a creature of some sort to each. “These are all scenes that are way out in the wilds discovered while I was off the trail resting,” said the artist. “I had the feeling that nobody had ever seen them before and that nobody ever would again. They are little jewels of discovery out of my wilderness treks.”
There is a Rufous hummingbird on the branch of a mountain hemlock tree with purple cones which are only about an inch long, even when mature. In another scene, a grasshopper climbs a tiger lily. Lyman continues to balance the showy with the unassuming in the third image by pairing a swallowtail butterfly with delicate pink mountain heather. Finally, there’s a ladybug beneath the flowers appropriately named shooting stars. “They explode with fireworks of blossoms at the top of the plant,” Lyman noted. Let the Wildflower Suite light up a corner in your home or work life with their up-close wilderness views.
