Red Mountains I, II and III from Ironton. The views of these are never ending. The spectacular feeling of emerging up out of the canyon to see them gives me a great sense of expansiveness – the endless possibilities for recreation and beauty in all seasons!  I can still feel the elation of dropping into their bowls for a deep ski, the reward of a beer and view of our tracks afterwards, from the back of a truck. I long to hike the length of their ridges at once.

This is a spring view, as the valley begins to become alive, but still the higher world is dominated by snow.

As I was finishing this painting this weekend I felt a chill come over me and a strong sense of my good friend Allison, now gone, who has skied and loved all of these mountains. I will never forget you Allison. My personal title for this painting is “Allison is FREE”.
