Eclipse At Elevation

This painting is from my travels and photos along the Blue Ridge Parkway, of an eclipse as it might appear, if it were total, as seen from the summit of Mt. Mitchell, the highest point east of the Mississippi River at 6642 feet. The character of the vegetation changes markedly from deciduous to more of an alpine climate as one approaches the summit. The view from the summit reveals the many ridges off in the distance. Oil on masonite, 22″x28″, 2017.
