Grand Canyon - Sketch - NFS

"Grand Canyon - Sketch", 10 x 12 In, Oil on Museum Board
For some reason I've always liked the abstract quality of this sketch, done on site during my first artist trip down the Grand Canyon back in 2005. This is a once in a life-time trip and I've been twice and planning for a third with a group of artists. There is nothing like it--to travel down the river from Lee's Ferry as the uplift of the Canyon walls are at their maximum in the Inner Gorge and you are traveling through the Vishnu Schist, formed 1.75 billion to 1.73 billion years ago.

Liz - NFS

"Liz", 12 x 9 In, Oil on Museum Board
I can't remember when I did this painting. I've done many paintings of Liz, but I think this one is from long ago.

Elk Creek Alley - NFS

"Elk Creek Alley", 8 x 10 In, Oil on Museum Board
This is another painting from a few years ago, one that painted itself--a sketch really. Of all the paintings I've done over the years, it is one of my favorites.
