Balancing Rock #2

20" x 16" Oil on canvas.
$300 - Shipping to US included.

I really enjoyed Arches National Park last year. It is jam packed with strange and unlikely rock formations. Awe inspiring...and I like jam!

Here is a work in progress photo of the painting that I posted earlier. I enjoyed working on the variations in the sky. The second formation makes a natural balance in the composition with the side lighting.

Balancing Rock

(Click for a larger view.)
$100 - Shipping to US included.

12" x 12" Oil on deep gallery wrap canvas.

This is Balancing Rock in Arches National Park. I really like how the composition in the square format turned out. The balancing rock is in a strong position on the left third and is "balanced" by the small figures that relate the scale of the rock. I especially enjoy how I can barely see the people at the base from across the room.

Arches is an amazing place and I enjoy revisiting the photos I took while there last year. Balancing Rock looks even more precarious from other angles.

Dot's Portrait

11" x 14" Oil on linen.

I revisited this portrait with some glazing to cut the deathly paleness.
