I started this painting a while back and coming off the big Kolob painting last week, I decided it was time to finish it up. I had a good painting session last night and laid in the center section of the painting and look forward to getting the bottom section blocked in today. This rock is called Siegfried Pyre and can be seen from the north rim of the Grand Canyon near Point Imperial. I am having fun painting a little bigger and it seems that my graphic sensibilities are showing up a bit more the larger I work. I am cool with that since it feels like a natural progression.
I have been making art for as long as I can remember. These days I work in acrylic paint or Photoshop when creating illustrations for magazines, children's book publishers and advertising clients. I have even been given some cool awards for it. Lately, I am loving oil painting out of doors and for galleries.
