I've never been to Mount Everest or even close, but I do have a fascination with big mountains, saw a photo of this somewhere and decided to paint it. I really like all the cracks, crevices, nooks, and crannies of this. I also like the way the red violet in the lower right sets the back to front contrast, and that violet to the blue violets, darker red accents for the cracks, and the lighter blues. Check out the wispy little cloud on top: I see those all the time over Mount Shasta.
