Another constructed landscape that I have been chipping away at for awhile. The composition is derived from several postcards of Pike's Peak I found. I remember driving to Colorado as a kid with my family and thinking how Pike's Peak always held a special significance. I no doubt the phrase "Pike's Peak or Bust!" added an element of challenge and implied danger.
The painting itself is the first landscape I have done on panel. The smooth surface allowed for the addition of many more details. More to come!
