Acrylic on Masonite Board, 16 x 20, with a self-constructed wood frame. There are many mountains we must climb on the road of adversity in this life, this painting for me represented one of those Hills I was trying to work through at the time. I was being treated for Depression. Artist Note: I finally reached the top of the Hill and by the Grace of God conquered what I thought to be impossible. The painting is titled Monte's Hill. This is a nocturnal painting, an imagined landscape rendered in a a Contempoary Abstract Impressionistic style. I photographed it from several angles and tried to include a close-up. It is a palette knife painting with heavy impasto like texture throughout. The Hill for me is a symbolic representation of the mountain I've had to climb in my own personal recovery. Art, Writing, and Music are three of the therapeutic tools I use to help keep me balanced. Monte's Hill is available for sale.
