I gave this painting to a friend and mentor to hang in his log home. He’s an eccentric, high-end antiques dealer who gave me the initial idea of creating custom caskets using my woodwork and artistic abilities. It hangs at the entrance to his den, a large room with log rafters above, where he’s going to place his own custom casket for a conversation piece when he gets it done.
I love the mountains and paint them more than anything else. The oval matting is part of the acrylic painting. The pine frame is my standard frame for landscapes, a two piece, distressed, antique looking border finished in a mixture of puritan pine and special walnut. The mountain scene comes straight out of my imagination.
