Tsilos IINovember 20, 2016

Mt. Tatlow , has been returned back to it’s original name Mt. Ts’yl?os. In the past, when I painted and named this picture, I knew it as Tsilos, which is one of the many attempts to spell it correctly. Mt. Ts’yl?os is culturaly and spiritually significant to the Xeni Gwet’lin who believe the mountain watches over them.  This view of the mountain is from the bluffs overlooking Chilco Lake. Glacier fed, it has an almost turquoise blue colour that contrasts magnificently with the mountain, bathed in the setting sun.
