The Ridge

“The Ridge” was inspired by being on top of the Bridger Range in Montana and shredding down on skis. I painted this specific piece while recovering from a broken back in a clamshell back brace. My mind was able to attain the freedom of the mountains during the painting process while forgetting about how uncomfortable and broken my body actually was at the time. It was a really freeing experience and I am so happy with how the painting turned out.
