Windswept McKinley

After lunch on our first painting day, the mountain came out intermittently, with blustery wind at our level and sweeping clouds up there at 20,000 feet. I pulled out my biggest panel to capture this biggest mountain. I had to work quickly, while it was still in view, and here is the rather dramatic result.

That's the Thoroughfare River at the foot of the mountain, below the tundra-covered glacier.

Mary Bee Kaufman, my painting partner, took the photo of me, and I used her camera to photograph her. It's great to have a really good photographer along, I would have many fewer photos but for Mary Bee!

Yes, I look like a crazy woman with all those layers, but I was glad to have them!
