Plein air oil painting of Alaskan Mountains. Pioneer Peak and Twin Peaks, cold, blue giants, towering over the Glen Highway.
Behind the Scenes
Painting en plein air (on sight in open air) is not for the faint of heart in any location. But Alaska offers a particular set of challenges. If it isn't freezing and dark, it is most likely raining, overcast, offering very flat light and obstructing views of the mountains. So what a thrill it was to be able to complete this painting on site and nail down my concept immediately. Instead of focusing on the peaks, I painted the intersection between Pioneer Peak, and Twin Peaks, that is readily visible to anyone driving the Glenn Highway. I wanted to convey the sheer enormity of these mountains as compared to the minutia of the man-made highway. This is the feeling I get when I look at a master painter's work--as if I am standing in awe at the feet of a giants. The original sold at it's first exhibition.
