Among the Mountain Gods (30" X 40")
Among the Mountain Gods (30 X 40")
These are some of my last paintings of the summer, when I was still up in Keene Valley after the family had left. I worked from photos I had taken of Mari up on Pyramid Peak. Painting from my photos is so convenient and strong paintings usually result from the exercise, but there is definitely more vigor, integrity, risk, and reward in pushing paint plein-air. I do both.
