One of the many rewards of painting on location is the time spent surrounded by such beauty. Your senses are heightened as you observe the movement of light and the nuances of color in the shadows of these cliffs. Below, sunlight illuminates the brilliant colors of converging rivers and high above the rushing waters your eye catches a bit of movement. Spotting wildlife while out painting is the ultimate reward, maybe even more of a reward than getting a good painting! 
Location: Lee's Ferry, AZ at the Paria Riffle with a great blue heron watching over all.

"High Above" is featured in the AWA exhibit at the Rockwell Museum in Corning, NY from January 19 -  April 22, 2018.
