Winter Sunset In Canyon


At 18 inches wide and 24 inches tall, this Plein Air painting captures the energy and emotion I felt while visiting the South Rim of The Grand Canyon in December of 2019. The snow had fallen yet there was a warmth and vibrancy in the air. There are little spots of color peeking through as if spring is ready to burst out of the snow.  I am inspired deeply by the beauty of the canyon and it follows me back into my studio. The smells, colors, and sounds create a one of a kind sense of exhilaration that I want to bring to life on canvas.  I hope that you too feel the magic that I felt standing on the south rim looking down onto the magic that is the Grand Canyon.

This piece contains spring water sourced from the Canyon that was used to alter the viscosity of some of the paint to create the feeling of motion.  

This piece comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.

Shipping is FREE And if you reside within 550 miles of Dallas/Fort Worth you can elect to have the artist hand-deliver this piece to you.  This white-glove service is available by appointment only.
