|"Black Diamond Canyon," oil on canvas 16" x 12", 2012|
My friend Kaethe Bealer turned me on to the Daily Paintworks site. Looks like a great way to be challenged and inspired, connect with other artists, gain exposure and sell my work. I plan to paint and post new work on a regular basis, and will keep this blog updated with thoughts and background as things progress.
This is Black Diamond Canyon, an oil painting I completed a couple of weeks ago. I did a little terraforming here, combining a view of our local Black Diamond Mines regional park with some memories of Bryce and Zion canyons we saw on a recent trip to Utah. It was a pleasure working with oil again, after focusing on acrylic for so long.
