This painting titled ‘Winter on the San Juan Ridge’.

 I painted this scene from a photo taken some years back.   My wife and I had snowshoed into this spot, a favoured area we have hiked to in all seasons of the year. The San Juan Ridge gets or used to get over some winters an accumulated snowfall of upwards to 20 feet.   Although we have not seen snow in those depths for some years. 

I have completed quite a few paintings of this area. The San Juan Ridge runs roughly parallel to the Strait of Juan de Fuca from approximately,  Jordan River almost to Port Renfrew

There is a trail system that you can navigate along  the Ridge, day hikes to multiple day hikes which I have written about in previous postings. On this particular day we had snowshoed all day and didn’t make our turn back until evening, travelling back on the frozen snow by moonlight, perfect conditions for snowshoeing.  

Measuring 24 inches x 30 inches x 1.5 this is painted in oil and just recently completed.

This painting is available for purchase $550.
