|Longs Peak Thunder (oil)|
I drove up Trail Ridge Road during the Plein Air Rockies 2014 event to see if I could capture some high mountain peaks. The weather was unstable though. I found a parking spot for my Vanagon in the Forest Canyon parking lot on top of Rocky Mountain Park, Colorado. I literally painted out of my van to be safer from the storm. I had two short painting sessions to capture the peaks as a few violent storms came through. When the lightning got too close I ducked inside the van to wait it out. It was another plein air adventure. I painted quickly, with a pallet knife and enjoyed swirling impasto strokes in this original oil.
This original oil painting is for sale. Inquire for availabilty.
