About This Painting

For the past two years, I've participated in the Grand Canyon Celebration of Arts "Plein Air on the Rim" event.  This is an invitational-only, and I've very proud to have been among the 30 artists invited from across the US and Canada each year.  For this piece, I returned to one of my favorite spots to paint, out on Yaki Point.  The light is always gorgeous on the little bit of tipped rock on the ledge.  I was particularly pleased with the sense of distance I was able to create in the painting.  It's hard to bring that sense to a small format version of the magnificent Grand Canyon!
