With a bit of trepidation, I submit this piece of 13 years ago... It's a compilation of places in my mind. 28x38 Acrylic.

They include: Ganglia twitches from Utah canyons, a month and a half climbing in Alaska and a fair bit of time I got to spend in Antarctica. So, not from any one place... As I am right handed, I wanted to paint my right hand ungloved as a challenge to myself...

Cool painting life. Like that perspective.

Phylp, great introspective. I agree it's an outlet to loose yourself in time and void of the everyday thoughts, much like climbing. For me the hardest part is also finding the time and more so just getting started. I paint obsessive for a week and then don't for a month. Good things happen to those who wait right? Another way I always thought of it being similar to climbing is you start with a blank canvas, each step brings you closer to the end and soon enough(maybe long for my process) you are done. When you are at a climb you sometimes get overwhelmed with the whole climb. Focussing on each move and your next step has always helped me fight this overwhelming feeling and I think the same can be said with producing art.

Bivouac! Why the tredpidation? It's a great contribution to the thread - and it's ON TOPIC! Bonus points. I especially like the "feel" of it and the composition. My only complaint is that the belayer should have a glove on that poor cold hand! I'm projecting my own cold aversion here!

Did you model it from one of your climbing photos?

I recognize that style...

It's from McLean's "gnarly" period, which pre-dated the gruesome "red rockfall" series. :O)

Slack-jawed & awed, b'God!

I wish I had art of my own, but it's no longer extant.

Maybe it will return someday.

Hey BC, those are wonderful at capturing the light in both canvases; how long have you been painting?
Really like them...

Hi life is a bivouac,
I've been painting landscapes in oil for about 10 years.
Just getting to where I tend to keep more than scrape!

I have been buying art for years at auction.

I got a rare bit of luck yesterday and managed to buy this early 19th century piece, 24x36, in the original frame, for about $250.

It is signed, but illegible. I spent all-day researching, but to no avail.

Probably Dutch school.

Mtn, those are top shelf. Pretty cool how you can capture the animal's anatomy without a realistic representation. Thanks.
