Grand Canyon Sketch 3 - SOLD

"Grand Canyon Sketch 3", 8 x 10 In, Oil on Museum Board
We painted early morning and late afternoon. Deep in the Canyon the sun goes down quickly. All these paintings were fast and loose with the brush and I felt a wonderful sense of both focus and freedom painting them.


  1. All your landscapes are great but this one is a favorite. I
    It truly glows with the warm light.
    Hope you are doing okay.

  2. Julie--thank you! I am doing better. I appreciate your thoughts!

  3. Gasp! I am gobsmacked! :) Hi Kathryn, I found my way to your site through Liz Wiltzen's (my coach) and just adore your colors in this pretty scene! I'll be sure to come back to see more work! Thanks, Cheryl Peddie.
