The Grand Canyon of Arizona has always held a fascination for me as an artist as a place of magic, where romantic effects of lights and shadows play in a symphony of technicolor wonder as well as being the greatest technical challenge an artist can experience. The ability to capture a grand vista requires an artist to paint directly from nature and use perspective, perception and the artist’s muse to recreate the most difficult subject in the world. To do so at the edge of the canyon with only a paint brush in hand, with the ever-ticking sound of the minute hand of my pocket watch reminding me that I have this fleeting moment to capture the view on canvas. Towering majestic peaks highlighted in pink and oranges, disappearing into a receding sea of violets, concealing the grand Colorado River a mile below my feet: in resplendent awe, I pause…
This is why I paint from nature.
