Abstracting in the fourth dimension

Mount Temple from timberline on Mount Fairview

The photo I used for this painting was taken near the same spot as the ones I used for the painting of Victoria Glacier that I wrote about on September 9.

My daughter’s family climbed up there in July, almost a month before the first heavy snowfall and two months before the larch trees that border the timberline had even started to turn orange. The space-time continuum is just one more factor to be abstracted in a painting.
