The original painting for this print was created using oils on a 36″x36″ canvas, and was inspired by my winter solo missions. I wanted to capture the vibration of wild wonder you feel when you are alone in the quiet of winter, high in the mountains.
The oversaturated palette and multiple suns are an expression of joy, of the many sources of light, and illustrate that surreal feeling of being on another planet that often takes hold of me during these experiences.
The bright colors of the sky are reflected on the snow and clouds below, reminding us that we are the makers of our own reality – what we dream in our inner world we can express outwardly.
Giclee signifies the highest quality print available, and is known for unparalleled detail in reproducing original artwork. This piece is printed with watercolor pigments on a cotton rag called “Sunset Select Velvet”, which I personally picked for its rich color
rendering and toothy texture, to mirror the feeling of the original painting.
This reproduction is archival (museum quality) and will stay true to its original rendering well beyond the point at which other prints may start to fade. To ensure the longevity of the piece, it should be framed behind glass.
