This view of Cathedral Peak is from the same hike in Aspen’s back country as the previous painting was taken from only somewhat closer to the mountains themselves. The format is oil on linen 18″ x 24″. This was an early fall day that for the most part was overcast with a brief exception when the skies cleared for a half an hour or so before they closed in again and snow flurries began. It felt like winter was not far off, the winds blew through the pines and there was a quietness in the mountains. This view of the peak was framed by the evergreens and lit by the afternoon sun.
