If you've ever been to the Grand Canyon, you know how spectacular it is just to be there! Then, as you witness the sun setting, and feel the temperature cooling off, you can't help but to be blown away by the experience.
This is one of my humble impressions of such majestic beauty... I intentionally wanted to create a 'distressed' look to this painting, to invoke the feeling of 'being one' with the canyon itself.

This is to give you an idea of the size of the commissioned painting that will be installed in the lobby of a Marriott hotel. This will be a textured abstract sunset, executed in oil paint, applied with a palette knife....
I will also be creating 2 separate panels in oil, that will be installed in the hotel's 'Meeting Room'. Those will be abstract textured oil paintings as well, and will have an earthy, wood feel to them, similar to this:
I'll keep posting my progress with this project, so check back with me!!
