Mt. Cheam, Near The Summit - From near the summit of Mount Cheam, I looked over a cliff and into this gorgeous pristine valley far below. by Tony Mayo
  Mt. Cheam, Near The Summit  (2016)
Subject: From near the summit of Mount Cheam, I looked over a cliff and into this gorgeous pristine valley far below.
Dimensions (inches): 12 x 16
Medium: Acrylic on Canvas
Description: I wear magnifying goggles and use a supper fine (20/0) brush when I paint. The entire surface of my paintings is meticulously covered with the minutest detail. Each blade of fine grass, each grain of sand and each tinny needle on a conifer tree are all painted individually and precisely. It takes me 225 hours to create a 12-inch by 16-inch hyper-detailed acrylic painting.
Mount Baker is known as Kwelshamexw to the Stl:lo (the local First Nation). Kwelshamexw, the largest mountain in the region, is the male, or Father Mountain. His wife, the second largest mountain in the region, is Mount Cheam. The Sto:lo name for Mount Cheam is Lhilheqey. The Sto:lo were a river people and Lhilheqey is located right on the edge of their river. Lhilheqey is considered Mother Mountain and as such guards and watches over her people. She also protects the salmon, the Sto:lo's main source of food, as they migrate up the river.
Mount Cheam is a threatened environment.
