96” x 48” - Oil on Canvas - 2019 - Private collection.

 

This beautiful mountain is located at the border of British Columbia and Alberta and is called “The Matterhorn of the Rockies” for it’s particular shape. On a crisp winter morning it’s a spectacular scene to watch.

It was named by George M. Dawson in 1885 for its resemblance with the teepees of Assiniboine Indians.

The seemingly endless layers of mountains one can see in the back reminds us of waves on an ocean. In this case moving slowly as the earth crusts push against each other during millions of years.
