A glorious autumn week in Zion National Park with nothing more to do than paint — now this is what every artist dreams. I was thrilled to join with 23 other invited artists who spent the week painting, doing live demonstrations, and participating in quick paint events at Zion last week. The weather was magnificent and the work created by all these great artists was something to behold. A “wet paint” sale and auction capped off the week’s work, with frenzied buying by hundreds of lucky collectors. Thanks to all the staff of the Zion National Park Foundation and Park Service employees who made it possible. Proceeds benefit the foundation’s “Youth Initiative” to bring inner-city kids into the park and share outdoor experiences with various school groups. I was happy to share my talents and enjoyed a great week.
