Behind the Canvas
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.
