This painting, titled Bugaboo Provincial Park, leans towards impressionism with its simplistic lines and colours. This being done to try to impress upon the viewer the shear height and rawness of the peaks. The Park is situated in the Purcell Mountains, located in South Eastern B.C. between Golden and Radium Hot Springs.
Bugaboo draws climbers and mountaineers from around the world are attracted to glaciers and immense peaks that rise above 3000 meters in height.
The brief park history is this, in 1969 Bugaboo Glacial Park and the Bugaboo Alpine recreational area were set aside. The Alpine Club of Canada constructed a three story quonset building for climbers in 1972. Finally in 1995 the park and surrounding area were combined to create the Bugaboo Provincial Park.
Over the passage of time severe mountain weather has removed the weaker overlaying rock to reveal grant masses and sculpting them into spectacular spires that characterize the region.
