    Description

    In the fall of 2016 I was determined to paint at the Grand Canyon. I was in Verde Valley heading north with all my art equipment. Through a series of events, an accident that caused a one hour delay on I17, a control fire north of Flagstaff and a few other incidentals along the way, I barely made it to the south rim before the sun went down. 

    Knowing I only had about a half hour of sunlight, I rushed to the rim and snapped as many photos as possible as the last rays of sun lit the canyon walls. I knew that with my memories of the beauty of that sunset and all my photo reference I could go back to the studio and create my paintings of those moments. Edge of Time is one of the paintings. The title has a double meaning, one of just getting there in time to witness this sight and another of the ancient rock walls of the canyon and old tree clinging to the edge.

    I love the way you created the sense of distance in this painting. Depicting the horizon line on a slight curve is very effective!

    Laguna Beach is one of my favorite places in the world. This painting really conveys the distinctive intangible quality of a Laguna Beach morning. Beautifully painted - the mood captured elevates the piece. Bravo.

    Lovely

    The composition keeps the eye moving while still conveying serenity. The brushwork is beautifully handled. This piece is deceptively simple. Well done.
