"Riparian' refers to the life zone along a waterway or a lake. The riches are the life inhabiting that zone - the fishes in the water, the insects the fish eat, the great blue heron that eats the fish, the frogs that inhabit the shore, the foliage, the lichens on the boulders. It's inspired by a bend in the Merced River near El Capitan, Yosemite." -Stephen

“He paints the wilderness with a knowledge and genuineness that can only be expressed by someone who has ‘been there’.”
Bev Doolittle - artist
Stephen Lyman was an explorer who specialized in painting the most elusive moments in nature. His inspiring work was inspired, in turn, by the writing and teachings of famous naturalist John Muir. "Muir wrote, 'Climb the mountains and get their good tidings,'" Stephen said. "I know exactly what he meant." Stephen's love of the great outdoors stemmed from a childhood spent in the Pacific Northwest, where hiking in Snake River country was a regular family ritual.
