New series exploring the country’s national park system
In a new series of paintings, I will be exploring our country’s greatest treasures, the national park system. In each painting, I will give a glimpse to the fora and fauna of a specific park set against its most iconic topographic featuring. In this painting, The Spirit of Guadalupe, I visit Guadalupe Mountains National Park in Texas. The scene is set with mule deer, roadrunners and butterflies embracing the morning sunlight. A golden eagle soars above the bluebonnets and Indian paintbrush flowering on the rocky terrain. In the distance, the monolithic “El Capitan” of Guadalupe stands as a silent sentinel to it all. It is truly a snapshot of the wonder in nature. In future work, you can look forward to experiencing the buffalo of Yellowstone, the bighorn sheep of Grand Canyon, and the bald eagles of Yosemite.
