Description: This painting began as a workshop demonstration in front of fifty artists. I was trying to show how a swift blocking in of tones with a rag could open up a motif that had yet to be visualized. Once the blended paint dried, I carved out the painting in the studio using brushes and medium. No references were employed during the creation of this painting, just simple impulse and imagination. As the work evolved I began to portray a very hot afternoon hike on the Kaibab Trail in the Grand Canyon. This is a memory painting, one that reflects many years of travel in the canyons and deserts of the Southwest.
