I wanted you to know that I received the painting and presented it to Jim and he loved it! Thank you so much for all of your time and effort. It was well worth the wait! — A. Boutillier, Morristown NJ


Artist Comments: This was a commission painting done for a client who had hiked up Mt. Kilimanjaro one year. The client supplied the photo from her trip for this painting. Since this was a memorable trip for my client, I kept the painting as close to the photograph as possible. My client loved the finished painting and proudly displays it in her living room where it receives many favorable comments from her guests.

About Mt. Kilimanjaro

Located in Tanzania Africa, Mt. Kilimanjaro is actually a dormant volcano and also happens to be the highest mountain in Africa at 19,340 feet above sea level. Its three volcanic cones are named Kibo, Mawenzi, and Shira. It isn’t certain where the name Kilimanjaro originates from, but there are several theories about that. A few possible meanings could be Mountain of Light, Mountain of Greatness, or Mountain of Caravans. Or it might not be any of these.

This mountain is a popular attraction for hikers and mountain climbers from all over the globe. Some estimate that more people have died trekking up Mt. Kilimanjaro than Mount Everest. However, it needs to be pointed out that Everest is attempted by significantly fewer climbers than Kilimanjaro.

Artist Comments: This winter landscape is one of my favorite snow paintings. I really enjoyed painting this fence post with all its knots, texture, and that hole. Painting those shadows in the snow turned out to be quite interesting too. I thought the barb wire was going to be a bit of a challenge to paint and almost left it out.

Note: This painting sold to a private art collector in Massachusetts.
