I am still overcome by the experience of painting en plein air during the week-long invitational “In the Footsteps of Thomas Moran.” What a grand experience that was to let my senses soak in the grandeur of that wonderful place. After returning to the studio, while still under Zion’s spell, I produced a couple of really large landscape paintings in an attempt to capture the glory of the place called “Zion.”

Morning Light on the Sentinel Zion National Park painting by Roland Lee

I both sketched and painted this scene of Zion’s Sentinel on location in Zion Canyon. However I really wanted to dramatize it in a big way. This was completed in my studio from my on-location studies. Click for information about this painting

Not feeling like I was capturing the scale of Zion’s huge cliffs, I went even larger with this painting of sheer cliffs in the afternoon light along Taylor Creek in the Kolob Canyons section of Zion Park. It is a portrait of the sculpting that goes on daily as Zion is carved and shaped by the master sculptor. Click for more information about this painting.

    Can’t be a better place to live and paint!. Some day we may retire there. I have a sister and brother in St George. Sigh
