Original Painting "Night Climb"
Oil on Canvas, 48" x 36", 2004
The night climb in mountaineering is exciting yet terrifying, exhilarating yet loathed. It's hard to comment objectively before the climb. You want to survive and that is always a question. This painting depicts a summit push from the moment one sets on the trail in the dark, with headlamps blazing. Mind focused on getting into a rhythm to get the work done. This painting will be framed by the artist.
