After a couple of weeks off this is the first effort back in the studio.
Hiked up to Lake Blanche last week and did some sketching and photography. This is the result of that outing. #utah #mountains #lake #bigcottonwoodcanyon #artoninstagram #pastel #chriscookfineart #sundialpeak #hiking #fineart
I've been very busy with many paintings
I recently finished these two paintings. "Tommy and Stetson" is a commissioned memorial peace for Tommy's mother. "Cow Canyon" is a view looking south toward the little town of Bluff in southeastern Utah.
I found this old cottonwood tree this spring in the Valley of the Gods in Southeastern Utah.
This is a view through the north window in Monument Valley in Arizona looking towards the King on his Throne, Castle Butte, Bear and Rabbit, and Stagecoach.
This painting was done using a live model in the Wasatch Mountains near White Pine Lake.
Monument Valley is one of my favorite places. It is a landscape full of grandeur and awe inspiring vistas intertwined with Native American culture.
Dimensions: 35.5 inches x 10.75 inches
I found this venerable truck at the mouth Cow Canyon in Bluff Utah. It seemed almost part of the landscape. This painting has already been sold.
Dimensions 36 inches by 24 inches.
