Cummins Skyway Canyon

Cummins Skyway Canyon, 30 x 40" acrylic on canvas
Betsy took me to the other side of the road, where the cows usually are (they were not there that Saturday). I saw a rabbit on the fire road where we set up. I wasn't sure if I would be able to return for a few weeks, and painted as fast as I could so I could finish this humongous canvas. I also used loads of medium so I could control the opacity of the color. It was a very hazy day, and the sky I originally made did not have any depth to it, so I changed it. The backlit hills are okay. I am still revising it in my studio, and will post an update when I'm done.


  1. Don't you think the reason this is so luminous (aside from the color) has to do with all that medium. I think you were inspired by the thought of Thomas Hart Benton!
