Grand Canyon Sketch 9

Grand Canyon Sketch 9, 6 x 10 In, Oil on Museum Board
This is another of my paintings from my trip down the Colorado in the Grand Canyon in May, 2013. I have not done much studio painting in the last few months, but the trips in the open air are still very important to me--they definitely take me outside of myself and as you can see, I'm painting with more abandon than ever.

Purchase this unframed painting for $225.
Contact me if you would like to purchase a plein air frame.
