"Capitol Peak" is the third in my Mountain Summit series. This one was a favorite of one of my artist friends; Mark Oehlert who used to live here, but now resides in San Antonio. Things I learned about Capitol Peak today as I painted her was she is a 14er; some 14, 137' high. Many consider her one of the most difficult climbs, I'm guessing due to the straight face. She is found in the rugged Elk Mountains and Maroon Bells here in Colorado. Here is "Capitol Peak" in a suggested frame.
I think it will be Longs Peak next; a favorite of another of my artist friends...so stay tuned!
I am also busy in my studio working on my next largish piece that will be aspen. I have started the background in acrylic and stamping, and then added papers...next will be to decide the tree placement and paint them...with a bit of oil to finish up I believe.
I missed a wonderful trip to my mother's on Easter Sunday due to weather...I also missed seeing my grand babies...sure love these people!
