Grand Canyon Battleship is a Plein Air piece, meaning done on the side of the Grand Canyon looking at this scene! It along with three other Plein Air pieces were accepted into the Outdoor Painters Society Southwest Saloon Show 2014. What an honor to be in this show! I had many friends able to make the opening and especially Jody Klotz, who purchased this picture on the day of the opening! Thank you so much Jody!
The opening was last Saturday, and the exhibit will be up for a month at Southwest Gallery, 4500 Sigma Rd., Dallas, TX 75244.
I aim to portray a special moment of time within each of my pieces. I love the play of light and color to depict movement on the canvas: the flick of a tail, floating clouds, the majesty of the canyon. Capturing these little marvels is the driving force that inspires me to create.
