Grand Canyon Arizona daily oil painting
"Back in the Saddle Again!" It feels good to be back to the easel. During our vacation in the Southwest, I was consumed with its beauty and couldn't wait to put it in painting. Many times I thought of the many artists throughout history that have painted what New Mexico, Arizona, Utah and Colorado have to offer. Especially one of my favorites, Edgar Payne. Here is a 6"x6" oil on primed masonite painting that I completed this morning. One of my first views of the Grand Canyon's south rim. I loved looking through the scrubby vegetation on the very edge out into the vast canyon. It helps give a sense of its amazing size.
