Mt. Cheam, Near the Summit
Painted with super fine brushes while wearing magnifying goggles, this painting required approximately one and a half hours per square inch to complete. Each tiny tree and each speck of sand were painted individually. Please note that the painting continues around the edge of the canvas and that the canvas “floats” away from the frame.
The minute details are best viewed using a magnifying glass.
The base of beautiful Mt. Cheam guards the Fraser River near Chilliwack, British Columbia. To local Sto:lo First Nations, Mt. Cheam, the second tallest mountain in the region, at 2,104 meters (6,903 feet), is known as “Lhileqey”. Lhileqey is considered the Mother Mountain and she gave birth to the three smaller mountains which trail behind her up the Fraser Canyon. The tallest mountain in the region is Mt. Baker at 3,286 meters (10,781 feet). To local Sto:lo First Nations, Mt. Baker is known as “Kwelxa”. Kwelxa is considered the Father Mountain and husband of Lhileqey.
