"Ascent" 

This is the second ever mountain painting I have done. The first was done on a whim at my coffee table, and I used a butter knife instead of a pallet knife. For this piece I invested in a lot more copper leaf, a pallet knife and I used blue paint instead of black for the base of the mountain. 

This piece is loosely based off of O'malley peak, another one of my favorite hikes close to Anchorage. 

The bold copper squares make this piece unique from a lot of my other work, as I started layering in different coats of paint as my process developed, however it is still a crowd favorite and holds a special place as the one of the pieces that started me on this journey.
