I have a friend who does quite a bit of back country hiking, snowshoeing, scrambling, etc. through the Colorado Mountain Club. He in this painting, the figure standing on the summit on the right. There are four people in this image; three are obvious and the fourth is harder to spot. This is a difficult picture as its so barren and the contrast between the summit in the foreground and the mountain in the middle ground, which stands in stark contrast to the foreground summit, yet there is little detail because of the time of day and the atmosphere. Once one is above tree line, the mountains almost look like dunes of a dessert. Not for sale.
