Here is the finished oil painting entitled “Heaven Shining Through.” Our family friend Jorn took a photo of the sunrise when climbing the Aconcagua mountain in Argentina, from which this painting is based. I was very impressed by the photo and felt that it’d make a great painting, so here it is!
When I was a Peace Corps Volunteer in Costa Rica, I climbed Mount Chirripó and saw some really amazing views, but this one of Aconcagua is just something else. Has anyone else done mountain climbing and seen views like this?
Feel free to leave your comments!

Stunning! Saw a similar break through of gold light above Table Mountain in the late afternoon a few days ago and thought what a stunning painting it would make…Wow. Beautiful. Thank you for sharing it. The sparse details keep the focus on that glorious light…Perfect title.
Thanks for the compliments! I’ve seen pictures before of Table Mountain and imagine there are all kinds of beautiful scenes to be taken in there. It’s really a unique landscape formation. Sounds like a fun painting to make!
