This view of Camp VIII was painted from memory while Dee was stormbound at the camp for 10 days during a blizzard. This image depicts one lone tent. Following the expedition, Dee viewed a slide of the site and painted another version showing all four expedition tents. This is one of the two highest paintings ever done, both by Dee, and one of ten created while on the expedition.

Dee Molenaar is well known as a mountaineer, geologist, and alpine artist. He is also a former summit guide and park ranger at Mount Rainier, and authored the award-winning book 'The Challenge of Rainier', the definitive work on the northwest's highest peak. Dee has participated in numerous expeditions, including St. Elias (1946), K2 (1953), McKinley (1960), and Kennedy (1965); along with travels in New Zealand, Antarctica, and the Peruvian Andes. Dee has painted at such diverse locales as below sea level in Death Valley to 25,200' on K2. His watercolor and oil sketches and maps have graced a great number of books and journals. Original paintings are in private collections throughout the US, Canada, Europe, New Zealand, China, and the Soviet Union.

We are pleased to present here a unique series of prints featuring watercolors which Dee painted during the Third American Karakoram Expedition 1953 to K2. During the course of the expedition, from approach to the final camp at 25,200', Dee took the time to make a series of 10 watercolor paintings. These are available as either signed enlargements or in a signed, limited edition numbered set of all 10 images in their original size.
