Mountain Art

Art and artists have played a role in creating awareness of the world's wild places. Without the paintings of Thomas Moran and Albert Bierstadt it might have been more difficult to gain public support for the creation of some of the major national parks in the Western United States.
Following that spirit, I'm hoping others will share their mountain art, whether they have created or collected it. Please, paintings & drawings only.
In some cases "clicking" on the image will let you see a larger version.

Nice idea for an album. I wish I had that talent. There are others on SP who do, and hopefully they will see this. Here are some I know of:

This is the first album that has led me anxiously from one image to the next.

I am having trouble thinking of a complimentary adjective to describe your work that does not sound trite…….

Thank you for sharing it with us.

Thanks ... I'm glad you liked it. I've really enjoyed your posts, especially the Pizzo Badile. In my wild and misspent youth I dreamed of climbing it by the classic North Face route ... now I'd settle for just going to see it. From what I've seen it would be good subject matter for a painting.

I should have said something like Fred did on my first comment. Really fantastic and inspirational work. Do you show any of your paintings at galleries in the area? Tomorrow is the First Night Art Walk in Fort Collins. I'd make a point of going to see some of it, for sure.

In any case, thanks again for sharing with us.

I show with Gallery East in Loveland ... but they are currently sold out of my work. I'm afraid I'm not very prolific. If you're wandering around in Fort Collins, I have a "mask" I collaborated on at the Museum of Contemporary Art in the old post office. It's titled, "The East Face"

idea for an album, and beautiful work. "Solo" is my favorite by far, as it communicates something more than the landscapes.

Wish I had more time to draw and paint...

Thanks, your artistic background makes your comment even more meaningful. Do you have anything you've created that you could add to this album ???

I wish I did have something to add, but the few mountain related paintings I've done, over 15 years ago, are no longer in my possession, but reside on my parent's walls.

Too busy with work and family to paint now, it seems, although I definitely have a handful of projects in my head waiting to get out.

Dear Jim, I notice just now your album and I think it is very nice presentation of another face of mountains. Through our feeling of them.

I attached a few of my images.

I didn't realize there was such an album on SP. This is great, and I must say I enjoy looking at your telephoto-like hyper-real paintings.

Do you have any sketches/drawings from life that you wouldn't mind sharing. I'd love to see em'. Just curious?

I just "discovered" this album. You have some incredibly beautiful paintings here. I say this honestly, not just to be nice-- I like yours better than all the others in the album. We all have our different tastes and I suppose none is more correct than another when it comes to art, but your style definitely speaks to me.

Thank you. It's nice to hear from someone who understands that one work of art isn't necessarily better than another, just different. After looking at many of your images, I think you have an artist's eye with your camera.
Peace, Jim
