Artwork Description: Afternoon Break: William Allan White Cabin
Afternoon Break shows a coffee cup and open book on an Oak table. Late afternoon window light washes over the table highlighting the rich grain of the oak.
This image was created early in June of 2011 during a two week appointment as Artist In Residence at Rocky Mountain National Park. Artists are housed in the historic William Allan White Cabin overlooking an alpine meadow and the Big Thompson River. It is surrounded by snow capped peaks. The view is captivating and a bit overwhelming. My creative vision is best exercised on smaller compositions.
We ate dinner at this table every evening. Each afternoon the setting sun shone through a large window and fell across this wonderful table. The cup and saucer are original to the cabin and the book was written (and inscribed) by W.A. White.
Afternoon Break was created on Velvia 100 sheet film exposed in a 4x5 inch Zone-VI view camera mounted with a 210mm/f-5.6 Caltar II N lens. The transparency has been digitally scanned and the image is presented here as an archival ink jet print.
This image was originally conceived, created, processed and printed expressly for donation to Rocky Mountain National Park. The first print of this image is in the possession of The National Park Service and will be sold by them to support the maintenance of W.H. White's historic cabin.
