I actually started this painting a few weeks ago in my workshop, but because of our travels I was unable to finish it until today. The subject of this painting is the “Altar of Sacrifice” in Zion National Park. It was so named because of its flat top and the red stains running down its sides. I chose a late afternoon light which spotlighted its features, so I called it “Light on the Altar.”
Tomorrow we’re off to Lake Powell for the Holiday weekend with my kids and grandkids. I’ll be taking my sketchbook, but with all the activity I doubt I’ll get much time to sketch or paint. However, I’ll get some great pictures of my grandkids!
