Stephen Lyman's vision for Thunderbolt was to allow the viewer to witness lightning's beauty and power closer than anyone would ever dare in real life. Stephen said, "Not having experienced even a close lightning strike, I nevertheless imagined the deafening crack of the atmosphere, and then painted the intense power and light flashing down an old juniper, exploding its bark and illuminating the surrounding rocks and trees."

“He paints the wilderness with a knowledge and genuineness that can only be expressed by someone who has ‘been there’.”
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.
