Years ago, while I took a correspondence course in art. This is my second mountain scene from 1990. The painting sat in my living room for years, meaning to finish it. Paints were too smelly to paint indoors. Outside, winter was too cold, summer too hot, dusty and buggy,.
Finally, got back to it, joing a local Art Forum. Changed the mountains to one single peak, Mt. Hood, from a postcard that I had. aTook almost another year to complete. I went to an art class near my home with a professional artist, First time for me painting plein air (outside). Being with other artists and getting professional instruction was so wonderful.
I completed the trees, and the lake, and took it home and over the next 2 or 3 days, finished with the trees in the foreground. When I was done, I felt like I had really accomplished something that I set out to do and created a really good piece. To me, it looked like a photograph or better still, like being there, looking out a window. Mt. Hood has become my favorite painting and probably my best, at that point.
Mt. Hood won an honorable mention in 2019 at Hemet Valley Art Association, in the first level, Bronze category.
