In October of 2018 I became Capitol Reef National Park's fourth artist-in-residence, together with support from the Entrada Institute. I lived in Brimhall House for several weeks, hiked in many parts of the Park and painted as much as possible - about a painting a day. I gave a talk in the town of Torrey, spent a morning with some bat researchers, a day with mountaineering/canyoneering guide Steve Howe and did as many drawings on watercolor paper to paint later as I could. I was particularly intrigued with the strong presence of a simple value study, using gold instead of black, that I did of the reef from the top of the Frying Pan trail, the second-to-last, wide image shown above.
