I painted this piece in August 2017. I live in Whistler, BC and so end up spending a lot of time in Squamish. I have talked about painting the chief for quite a while and finally decided to commit and do it. I set up my easel along a river bed during low tide. The ground was a bit soft due to the recently receded water but it gave me a great view of the Chief. I returned a second day to finish this one up. So this is actually the first painting of the chief I have done and hopefully not my last. This epic mountain had definitely captivated my attention so I am certain there will be more paintings of this mountain coming!
