Lonely Perch

I am in awe of how atmosphere changes the color of the earth. The stratified layers of the Grand Canyon show this like no other place on Earth. My series of South Rim plein air oil paintings show this as best I can paint. This is one in a series painted in September of 2012 during a workshop with Linda Glover Gootch given through the Scottsdale Artists School and the Grand Canyon Field Institute.
