"Engine Trouble" is an original 20x30" oil painting on stretched cotton canvas.
"Engine Trouble" is a reminder that some days are more challenging to hold onto our cherished desires. When it comes to mountaineering the views get increasingly gorgeous the closer we get to the top. However, the oxygen level becomes thinner. Making the simple task of breathing your forefront concern. Having a successful summit requires the investment in oxygen, and/or the proper training beforehand, but most importantly the increasing desire and will to reach the top. This painting is of the highline trail in Glacier National Park in Montana. I loved that the beargrass in the fields reminded me of ice cream stacked high in an ice cream cone. As if each were a celebration to every struggle conquered to make the summit.
Currently hanging at Stodgy Brewing Company in Fort Collins, CO.
