Oils on Toned Canvas - 16" x 8"
CANYON OF DEATH
This one was created with leftover paint, Raw Umber and white on a palette I was using while trying to cover up spots on an oil painting. Wiggly lines made on a scrap of canvas suggested a figure and scene to me.
Often when I'm painting off-the-cuff like this I can't say why I felt attracted to the particular subject. It kind of just happens.
Admittedly here, I had been looking at some slides of my old paintings from college, many of which betray my Frazetta influences, so perhaps I was channeling that when I got into this little piece.
