This painting of the Grand Canyon was inspired by the first time I ever saw the Grand Canyon in person, a few years ago. Since then I have revisted the canyon at different times of the day, and this October I will be backpacking down into the canyon to explore it from a different viewpoint. The vibrant colors and repeating patterns of the landscape are surprising and awe-inspiring when seen in person, and I wanted to capture some of that wide expanse of drama in this large oil painting.
This painting was created on 1-1/2"-deep wrapped canvas, with the painting continued around the edges of the canvas. This work has been framed in a gold floater frame. The angular lines of the frame beautifully complement the canyon pattern in the painting.
Exhibited The Orange Show, The Erin Hanson Gallery, Los Angeles, CA. 2016.
