Heaven Shining Through – new oil painting

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!

Heaven Shining Through – Original Oil Painting – 12″ x 24″ x .75″ – gallery wrapped, triple-primed cotton duck canvas

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!

2/3 done with painting

Just have to add some more depth with the rye, make the sky a bit darker and more dangerous-looking, and add in the main character (possibly my client’s father, in this case), on the cliff.  Until then, here’s what it looks like right now!

I recently turned this photo of baby Victoria with her visiting grandparents from Portugal into a portrait drawing that was given as a surprise gift to them.  Mario, the grandfather, is also a talented artist.  I’m glad they liked it and have some meaningful artwork to display in their home back in Portugal!
