Iconic and beautiful, Mount Sir Donald is located in Rogers Pass and is an undeniable jewel of the Selkirk Mountain Range. Over ten thousand feet with an unmistakable shark fin shape, Sir Donald is not easily missed. There are several climbing routes to the top, but the famed northwest ridge provides beautiful, easy (5.4) climbing along an aesthetic, airy ridge. I have a great memory of climbing it on a sunny summers day with an old friend. This image was based off of an old photo from 1902 taken from Mount Abbott and is my homage to Sir Donald. I hope it inspires a visit!
Why Metal Prints?
Our aluminum clear gloss prints are made from 100% post consumer recycled metal and this delights us. We are always trying to find ways to make our products and creative processes more sustainable and printing our designs on metal reduces an enormous amount of waste. Our metal prints are 0.045 inches thick, surprisingly lightweight, permanent, durable, scratch resistant and can be easily cleaned with a soft cloth. In previous times I have used an epoxy resin to finish the majority of my work because I loved the vibrancy and depth that resin offers. However, epoxy resined artwork creates an incredible amount of waste, is highly toxic and the finish itself is difficult to clean, easily scratched and adds considerable weight to finished pieces. Switching to clear gloss metal prints allows me to continue to offer work that has a clean, simple, frameless appearance. The gloss brushed silver also allows the metal to show through the lighter areas of my images and creates a unique, lively quality to my work while simultaneously highlighting the detail of each image.
