“Big View”, from the second last evening of my Kluane journey at Lowell Lake. Looking out to Lowell Glacier, after a nice hike up Goat Herd mountain to about 1,500 ft elevation. The next day, the dominant iceberg on the right side of the painting dramatically collapsed before my eyes as I went out to paint it (watch video on homepage on bottom right). So I did manage to paint it after all, but not quite as I expected to. Love to do a large canvas from this one, maybe 5 to 6 feet wide. – Cory
- “Logan”, (study), 16″ x 5″, oil on linen
Mount Logan, Canada’s highest mountain. Began on location at 10,000 ft elevation on the ice fields of Kluane National Park & Reserve, Yukon Canada
“Logan” is it. My study for my first 8-10 foot wide TrueWild Legacy painting. One of the biggest aspirations of my TrueWild project, in addition to finding incredible, majestic landscapes during month-long painting/filming expeditions into some of Canada’s grandest wilderness National Parks, creating new paintings and films and sharing the experience with others… is to find that one majestic view on each journey that rises above them all, combining the visceral experience of being in a truly wild place with creative breathlessness, and taking it all onto a huge canvas.
Though I had many choices in Kluane National Park, it was THIS VISTA that had it all for me. Sublime evening light on Mount Logan, the biggest mountain in Canada, soaked in while standing at my easel on 13 feet of snow over top of a kilometre plus layer of ice on a spectacular calm ice field evening at 10,000 ft in the largest non-polar ice field on earth. Need I say more? – Cory
“Rough Waters” is from the canoeing portion of my month-long Yukon expedition. This is Bates Lake, a very wild and raw looking body of water. I loved the foreboding sense of the dark water under this lighting. Sometimes it’s better to be on shore. – Cory
I camped overlooking the Donjek on my TrueWild:Kluane expedition, ideal ideal Yukon summer weather. It was no powerful to hear ice cracking and falling while sleeping in the tent. – Cory
