Warmed by the View
"Warmed by the View" sparks the most popular question from collectors... "Who would build a campfire that close to a cliff?" Artist Stephen Lyman answered this question quite simply: “I did.” An avid adventurer, Lyman lived his paintings and "Warmed by the View" is no exception. Never one to pick level, comfortable camp sites, Stephen preferred more dramatic, unique locations where he could enjoy 360 degrees of landscape view. It's difficult to name one signature piece with artists as talented and prolific as Stephen. Certainly his series of campfire paintings qualify and "Warmed by the View" is one of the crowning jewels in that series.
This cliff edge above Yosemite Falls was a typical camping spot for Stephen. “Fortunately,” he said, “it's hard to go sleepwalking when zipped in a sleeping bag.”
