Yosemite River is an archival print of an oil painting in the impressionism art style by Lyle Suter that was produced in the early 1970s. The painting is a peaceful landscape that features a forest in brilliant autumn colors overlooking a gently flowing shallow river in somewhat mountainous terrain. Once again Mr. Suter’s brush stokes create movement as the viewer’s eyes ride the river from right to left accompanied by the beautiful forest as it changes from the green colors of summer to the rainbows colored spectrum of the fall.
Mr. Suter skillfully frames the impressionism of the forest and river by painting the mountains in traditional style. The brush stokes make the river move over shallow areas revealing rocks and slightly deeper areas with mellow rapids.
This painting decorated the Suter home for many years and was a reminder of their wonderful vacations in Yosemite in the 1960s. Yosemite River was also displayed at the Martin Luther King, Jr (MLK). Portrait Preview in Los Angeles, CA on December 1, 1971 at Colonial Savings and Loan Association. The MLK Portrait Preview is an exhibit in the Lyle Suter Art Museum and can be seen under the heading, Professional Artist”, “MLK Portrait Preview”.
