This painting is titled ‘ Height of the Rockies Provincial Park ‘ it measures out at 31.5 inches x 47 inches x 1.5 inches and is under painted in acrylic and finished over in oil on canvas.
This scene is painted from a photo of the limestone lakes in the Park of the same. This Provincial Park is truly a wilderness area with no roads penetrating the park and no services, although there are some pit toilets and a couple of cabins, the use of logging roads does put one to several of the trail heads that lead into the Park .
This Park lies adjacent to Banff National Park, Elk Lakes Park and Peter Lougheed Park in Alberta. It was established in 1995 and is over 54,000 hectares in size. Within its boundaries there are over 60 alpine and sub alpine lakes, many glaciers and alpine meadows. In this painting I tried to capture the vast remoteness of the area by turning the canvas around, such an awe inspiring area, you can see where the glacier scraped across this forbidding landscape.
This painting was only recently completed and has not been to a show yet.
It is available for purchase for $ 625.00. Thank you, JJ.
