The Old Man of the Mountain

painting of the Old Man of the Mountain
This painting features New Hampshire's state symbol, The Old Man of the Mountain, on a sunny day in summer among some evergreen trees with a little bit of haze in the distance. The trees in reality are smaller and further down, but I felt this would make a more interesting picture.
Although this rock formation fell in 2003,  it created a symbol while it stood watch over Franconia Notch that still serves as a reminder of the rugged independence of New Hampshire.

Medium: Acrylic paint on stretched canvas.

Size: 18" x 24"

Date painted: Fall 2007

Status: This painting is not for sale.

Artist: David S. Straughan
