Bryan Mark Taylor Workshop at Mt. Carmel Utah

I participated in a great workshop last week with one of my favorite plein air artists, Brian Mark Taylor. The event was sponsored by Paul and Susan Bingham through the Thunderbird Foundation headquartered at the famous Maynard Dixon Property in Mt. Carmel Utah. We were able to hone our plein air skills in oil while painting in Zion National Park, Mount Carmel, and along the river in the Barracks. Thanks to Brian for coming down to share his expertise.

Cedar Breaks National Monument at Point Supreme

I just sent two new studio paintings for display in Zion National Park as part of the 2016 Zion Plein Air event. The 24 artists selected have been asked to submit two paintings for a special exhibit which will remain on display through Thanksgiving. In this special "Centennial Edition" artists were asked to paint one of Zion and another national park or monument. My second painting is of Cedar Breaks  National Monument.
