"Give me silence, water, hope
  Give me struggle, iron, volcanoes"
                              
Pablo Neruda

This painting depicts a view from high on Aconcagua in the Andes Range of Argentina. Alex completed the painting after a climbing expedition on  Aconcagua, at 22,841 feet the tallest peak in the Western hemisphere. The Stone Sentinel is one of Alex's many paintings to capture the unique qualities of light found at extreme altitudes. The snow and ice formations depicted in the foreground are known as "penitentes." All proceeds from sales of The Stone Sentinel prints were donated to the Muscular Dystrophy Association during Alex's year-long fundraising drive. The total number of Limited Edition prints was based on the number of contributions received for the Association.
