This summer I took a rafting trip through the Grand Canyon with one of my sons. We spent 8 days rafting, camping and hiking in one of the most incredible places in the United States. No cell phones, internet, or electricity; off the grid and sleeping under the stars.
When we returned home, it took 4 days before I stopped waking in the middle of the night convinced I was in a raft on the river.
Although I did not have the luxury of time to sit and paint plein air each afternoon, I did manage a few quick studies. I hope to do a long series of Grand Canyon paintings once I finish up all those deadlines that have been waiting for me to return home.

Even the rocks were beautiful!!
