Grand Canyon, Sedona & Zion plein air events!

I'm home from what are essentially back to back plein air events at Grand Canyon National Park, Sedona, Arizona and Zion National Park. It's hard to put into words just how amazing these events were and how humbled and happy I am to have be able to participate in them. My thanks goes out to all the great people who worked so hard to put on these incredible exhibits, to the collectors and public who participate in so many ways and to my fellow artists (BAPA Presidents and otherwise) whose support and friendship lifted these events to a whole new level. Thanks also to all the great hosts who put me up and put up with me (my apologies for any paint spots or empty wine bottles I may have left behind).  

My roomie for the week and great artist Jim Wodark

This show (or what's left unsold) is still up at the 
Kolb Studio Gallery, South Rim Village.

Picked up a Merit Award chosen by artist Jill Carver.

I appreciate to all of you for this mind-blowing effort. This is one of the best ideas to introduce different and stunning things others. I’m a tourist and I have seen numerous things but I have never seen like this exhibition. Well I want to see this place soon. So I’m going to arrange las Vegas to grand canyon bus tours and needs your help to reach at the spot exactly. Now you let me explain the exact location of this place where I’ll see your art.
