"SPRING APPROACHES" New Original Oil Painting by Mike Callahan

"Spring Approaches"
24" x 30"
Oil on Canvas
Here's another painting in my Tahoe's of the mouth of the Truckee River right where it leaves Lake Tahoe. I believe I shot the reference for this painting in March and while we got snow after that this year, at the time I shot this reference, the snow was rapidly diminishing...enjoy!
