On Noonmark

Noonmark mountain is a peak in Keene Valley with a commanding 360 view. It gets its name because, viewed from the valley, the sun seems to rest on the top at noon. During the dark days of Feb. I wanted to relive the feeling of a summer climb. A self portrait from a combination of sources in pastel.

This is a painting about wind, how it feels and looks. It conveys movement and a spirit of adventure. There is a certain mystery present, as if it is unknown whether the hiker is moving forward or transfixed by the view. You have captured the spirit of place.
