Mount Kineo has the largest known deposit of rhyolite in North America, which made it the premier destination for early natives who used the rock to make arrowheads and tools. This geological formation was also a destination for Henry David Thoreau and Teddy Roosevelt (information from visitmaine.com).

 

“My family took a trip to Moosehead Lake a few years ago with the goal of hiking Mount Kineo. We got the gold star treatment on the day of the hike, as my friend and co-worker, Dennis, happens to own a house near the Kineo launch and he gladly offered to ferry my father, brother and me over to the trailhead, all the while regaling us with stories about the area as we approached the unique looking mountain.

 

We were dropped off and started ambling our way along the trail, quickly coming upon a deer skeleton that must have made a good meal for something else in the food chain. The trail soon started to gain elevation and we were able to glimpse views of Moosehead Lake through the trees. Our true reward came from the fire tower at the top of the mountain which, after braving the see-through metal grate staircase, allowed us almost 365-degree views of this wild and mountainous region of Maine.” 

 

This graphic artwork is loosely inspired by the vintage "See America" posters. I work in layers painting blocks of color similar to a block print or silkscreen process. My work typically includes anywhere from 150-200 layers of flat shapes of color that are built one on top of the other to create a larger object within the piece.
