Canyon Colors Collide

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 !

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

but

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!

Now the rocks and river are about done

and the green plants, grasses, cacti, and sand deposits will finish the painting.

 This step will need to dry a bit first!

Painting THE Grand Canyon

June 2nd, 2016

Somehow I can never do this small or by looking at photos.

Having been at the bottom now twice gives me the feeling of color movement and sturdy rock foundations.

This time it is a Colorado River view that formed a mind photo needed to feel this painting.

This is not finished but a solid start

Canyon Colors Collide

May 4th, 2016

This is a new painting of the Grand Canyon. I have started the under painting colors on top of the texture that I started with so there were rocks.

This large painting is not from an exact place in the canyon but from the feelings and colors that I remember  Sort of the magic of the light water and rocks..

IMG_4436 IMG_4449 Later I’ll paint some smaller exact places in the canyon.
