"King of the Mountain"

Oil on Linen on Panel

Image Size: 18 x 14

I painted this from a photo I took in Rocky Mountain National Park in March. The deer was not there - I added him for interest. What was there was a huge blinding sun that covered about a quarter of the photo, since I was shooting directly into the sun! I had to imagine what it would look like coming through the trees in late afternoon. What attracted me was the patterns in the snow that the light and shadow made - that was the reason I wanted to paint it, plus I liked the large shape of the hill kind of taking over the painting.
