Irony Alert!

It seems a bit odd that a movie whose story line both condemns corporate greed and extols the vitues of rain-forest inhabitants would be doing a product tie-in with McDonalds.

Or maybe its just me?

One of a series of paintings inspired by old LIFE and National Geographic magazines. The source image for this was actually cobbled together in photoshop from 2 or 3 images of a famous, early 60's American Mt. Everest expedition.

Besides the illusion of gravity and of deep space rushing down the couloir and back (and seemingly tilting up) to the distant glacier, I was intrigued by the state-of-the-art high tech equipment of the day: leather, wool, and nylon. The climbers probably smoked, too, in their tents and warming huts.
