Sunrise in the Wallowas (framed) by Stephen Lyman
Far removed from any major metropolis, Oregon’s Wallowa Mountains have long been a Lyman family favorite. Originally introduced to the splendor of the Wallowas by his parents, Steve would often take family trips there with his sister Shauna, and brother Scott. Later in his life, Steve introduced his wife Andrea to the area and she cherishes memories of time spent there together.
“As I camped by this lake years ago, I awoke in the morning to watch the crest of the ridge catch fire with the golden light of sunrise,” Stephen said once in describing the inspiration for the painting. Steve submitted “Sunrise in the Wallowas” to The Greenwich Workshop in 1982 following not one, but two rejections of his work. Not only did this landscape convince Greenwich Workshop founder Dave Usher to finally publish Steve’s art, but he also bought the original painting to hang in the company’s offices.
