This rather small and insignificant mountain - you can see how big the trees are in comparison to it - could be anywhere but most likely judging by the huge snowfall present in the painting the location is the British Columbia Coast Mountains near Joni's hide-a-way estate. It is a stylized representation of colors and textures and billowing snow, which can be 10-20 meters / 30-60 feet deep on the mountains in winter, sea level usually stays snow free. So much snow falls here in winter, and rain in Spring and Autumn, that if the clouds part occassionally or disappear all together for a few days each month, getting a glimpse of these snow peaks is a rare treat, they stand out like giant vanilla ice cream cones or sundaes against a deep blue sky.
