In 2016 I hiked to this very spot during a very different time in my life. I was painting while hiking The Pacific Crest Trail and I had finally come to a routine where painting on the trail had become a practiced process. Five years later and it is wonderful to see that evolution in my own work, it gives the rare opportunity to reflect rather than compare. There were pieces of this landscape that I remembered, and others that popped out at me in the moment that I hadn’t noticed before. My process is faster, on larger paper, more painterly, and less focused on what the land looks like and more about the details that draw me in. The swooping dip and movement of this landscape is ultimately the thing that inspires me most about this view.
