“Under The Spell of Denali”
oil on linen
32 x 48
Not For Sale at This time
March 2019 I had the privilege of painting along the very route that Hudson Stuck and Harry Karstens used on the first successful assent of Denali in 1917. That assent, as well as previous attempts were only possible with the aid of dog teams. The dogs you see in this painting are still hauling climbing gear today onto the lower elevations of Denali
to facilitate climbers along this historic Northern Route.
“Under the Spell of Denali” is on display in our gallery in Mancos. It will be released for sale after two additional major paintings are
completed this coming winter.
