Title:  “The Confidence of Youth”

Price:   $3,250 US$ 

( The painting is presently unframed )


Image Size:   21” x 26”

Subject:   Himalayan Blue Sheep in Gangotri National Park near Goumukh, the glacial origin of the sacred Ganges River.

This recent painting is part of David’s ongoing efforts to paint the beauty of the Ganges Himalayas. It depicts the lovely Himalayan Blue Sheep / Bharal - that live in the high altitude sanctuary of the Ganges Glacier.


Speaking of this painting David says... “In studying these masters of the Himalayan high country I was inspired by the sheer agility and confidence these sheep exhibit when scaling even the steepest cliff face. The young males seem to move very aggressively up and down with an astounding level of sure-footed confidence. So I wanted to paint an image that captured some of that self-assurance. Even when they’d appear as though they were about to fall over a chasm... they’d aggressively leap one direction or another with utter grace and control that defied both gravity and the extreme dangers of the terrain.


It is this extreme confidence in their own ability to move freely in such inhospitable terrain which allows them to evade their constant foe... the secretive and deadly Snow Leopard.

Title:  Bhagirathi Vista

Price:   $4,800 US$ / SOLD


Image Size:   24” x 34”

Subject:   One of my primary artistic objectives in the Ganges Himalayas is to present some of the most beautiful sights & vistas. This is the single most sacred region of mountains in the world, with an ancient and living spiritual heritage that second to none. However, although the region’s profound spiritual destinations, traditions, and objectives have been well known for thousands of years... it’s extreme beauty tends to get easily eclipsed by the religious atmosphere.


My objective is to try and enhance the public’s appreciation of the Ganges Himalayas from a purely artistic point of view in much the same way as artists of the 1800’s helped to define the extreme beauty of America’s Yellowstone National Park.


This particular view is not only one of my favorite views of the Ganges River, but it is extremely easy to visit as it lies right on the main route up into the Ganges high country on the way to the tiny pilgrimage town of Gangotri.
