Milt Christianson has lived and worked in Maine since 1970. He has traveled and painted in India, Australia, and Russia, as well as much of the United States. He exhibits in Maine and in Tucson, Arizona. Milt lives on land he homesteaded in the small, remote town of Wellington in the northwoods of Maine, a little southwest of Greenville. Milt's comment about this print: "Cosmic Katahdin is a print of a visionary painting of Mt. Katahdin. When you go Mt. Kathdin, you feel like you can touch the sky, and i put that into my imagery. We know all those planets are out there, and this expresses my feeling that I am a part of it all, that I have a place in the universe. Also, I really like the colors!"
Mount Katahdin is the highest mountain in Maine at 5,267 feet (1,605 m). Katahdin is the centerpiece of Baxter State Park. Katahdin was known to the Native Americans in the region, and was known to Europeans at least since 1689. The area around the peak was protected by Governor Percival Baxter starting in the 1930s. Katahdin is the northern terminus of the Appalachian Trail, and is located near a stretch known as the Hundred-mile Wilderness.
