My aunt and uncle commissioned a painting to hang above their fireplace at their chalet at Blue Mountain. They wanted the painting to have a connection to my grandparents, who spent a lot of their time up at Blue Mountain. I decided to paint the orchard runs which are opening up next winter and are the closest part of the hill to my aunt and uncle’s chalet. As a tribute to my grandparents, I included their faces in the hill. They are difficult to see, but if you know they are there you can find them. My grandparents are no longer with us, but like in the painting, if I know they are there on the hill, their presence can be found.
