8x10 oil on canvas panel.....SOLD
Wheeler Peak is the second highest mountain in Nevada...surpassed only by Boundary Peak on the Nevada/California border. Here [where my studio is for the summer]... on the Utah/Nevada stateline... is Great Basin National Park with wonderful old-time campgrounds and plenty of water [for now]. There used to be large glaciers on Wheeler...but as this painting shows...there are just a few patches left from it's former glorious white mantle. This piece depicts a scene from the Alpine Lakes Loop Trail...all above 10,000' in the high thin air and intense sunlight.
