Harney Peak - the Core
acrylic on canvas
36" x 54"
Off one side of
Harney Peak, a great defile cuts close to the bulging core of the great
mountain. A freshet courses through the defile after rains or with melting
snow, it fills a small basin with water that is golden in every light. A golden
heart beats at the core of Harney Peak. The
mountain is said by many to be enchanted, a place of power, and the center of a
universe. It may be so. I have tried to paint the power of the place, to paint
the heat of its heart more than the cool of its stone.
