STILL come HERE or check FACEBOOK for what I am doing NOW
Canyon Four Square
Four 12 x 12 paintings form one
Painted from the photos that I took on a whitewater raft trip down the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon.
The cactus was blooming on the rock edge looking back down at the Colorado River
The sun turned the water gold many times but at this second the green and blue were gone leaving only the gold
When the Little Colorado joins the water is pure Ice Blue as it tumbles over the rocks to join the mighty Colorado
Looking down the current and rock patterns show the flowing motion that cuts through the Grand Canyon
I have a major change to my web site It is totally new and very different.
The new one will be up and running sometime after the 15th but before January 1 2017
You can still here to see what I am doing now and what the new paintings are in the process
The web site will link here easily and work much better as a store and gallery.
SO …. Check back soon to artbyrae.com
I will have a New and Improved web site very soon
This will be better gallery photos and better shopping and better
adding new excitement to my Online marketing
still come here to see what is happening NOW
The place is the Grand Canyon, the subject is the Colorado River but….
the 4 small parts of the canyon are very different.
Looking down, Looking up, Gold water, Blue water, Green water, and lots of movement in the water,
Then add rocks and plants and these little parts pick up big feelings!
Here are photos of the starts. Under painting is in Acrylic but I will finish them in Oil 12 x 12 size
Canyon Colors Collide
Reunion with magic
fantasy and glory.
Rocks and water
tell an ages old story.
Edges of sunlight splashed
on a river’s past generations.
Colors consistent with
children’s paint fascinations.
New memories are made
as stories are told.
There is nothing but joy in the
ledges of gold.
24 x 48 Oil Painting
This is not photo specific but is memory perfect!
To look up and look down at the same time was important.
To get the feeling of being small and big at the same time seemed to happen without trying.
The layers of texture and brilliance of color, makes this memory snapshot perfect !
Thank You for a great ride GITAP
To the baggage trucks for taking the bags needed so I could ride with just daily gear
Thank you trails and roads
Even if there was sun and wind, bumps and hills the total picture was fun.
Rivers, corn, wind farms, and roads. Trees to sit under and clouds to give some shade
ALL made the trip a memory of biking fun!
BUT it is the bikers and friends that top the list
friends to bike with, camp with, stop and rest with, and have food and music times,
(even shower with but no photos of that LOL)
JUST SO YOU KNOW
We may complain of heat and sun
we may be up set with wind and tar
riding by bike is best by far
not fast in a car
We go with the things that nature throws
this way our spirit grows.
It shows in hands here that help and the health of the faces .
biking …. age it erases!
