To the Summit

TM9237 TO the Summit 30 x 50 oil on panel

I was looking through old photos and studies from a hike I took years ago up Mt. Champlain in Acadia. It reminded me how much I love that mountain. I’ve climbed it with friends, with my husband in winter, and with my first dog, a feisty little Boston Terrier. We all enjoyed it many times. But I’ve never done a larger painting of it. I guess it always intimidated me – but not anymore. This new painting shows the ocean off in the distance, and the kind of luminously moist air you feel and see near the coast. I think I’ll need to go there again this spring, and perhaps do more paintings based on some of my other favorite mountains. Enjoy.
