This pastel painting was based on a photograph that I had taken 44 years earlier when I was traveling over the Alps
by car from Germany to Switzerland. The scenery there was magnificent, and I wanted to capture the incredible height
and depth of the landscape, the majesty of the mountains, and the enormous mass of pine trees that lined the
passageways. Also I wanted to illustrate the "cabin-like" homes of the folks living there, with their dirt roads, cut firewood, and simple life...enjoying their natural habitat with gorgeous views of the Alps above.
