No-Name Mountain

No-Name Mountain

by Kelly Rockstein

Oil on canvas 

Inspiration: Standing at 8,000-some-odd feet on top of a snow-capped rock is daunting, yet at the same time, it can be grounding. This painting is inspired by a photo I took in Colorado. I had reconnected to both the mountains and an old friend. For the first time in a long time, I stood with someone I loved.
