"Tongariro Crossing", 10 x 12, Oil on Museum Board
In my mind, the name "Tongariro" brings forth a concept of the mythical. But the 12 mile hike itself over the Tongariro Crossing on the North Island of New Zealand was one tough hike--especially the "steps" coming down the far side. No, I didn't take my paints with me--this was a studio painting and a difficult one, because the rocky landscape had neither dramatic values or dramatic colors. So it was a challenge, just as the hike itself was a challenge.
