Painting on this peak in the sky the only thing higher are airplanes. The paintings done here are almost at the top of the mountain. Due to the commercial feel at the top I found it best to paint slightly below the top of the mountain. The clouds acting like curtains make circular compositions showing the sky or mountain behind them. What surprises. Some tidbits about the mountain-
”The mountain pushed us off her knees.
And now her lap is full of trees.”
Robert Frost (1874-1963), U.S. poet. “The Birthplace.”
Before European settlers arrived, the mountain was known as Agiocochook, or “Home of the Great Spirit”.
In this group of photographs I am painting the mountains and field pink as a study of the other 99% of the mountain that we cannot see with our senses. The painting is called Von Great. The dress is a garden dress for the 1950’s.The photographs are done by Joe Klementovich.
