Tracy Grant


This was the landscape that I was supposed to be painting instead of a dusty old Corona bottle. What WAS I thinking? In her moleskin, I wanted to surprise Michelle Burnett by doing a portrait of one of her painting buddies, Tracy, and feature some of the beautiful country around Helper, Utah. What a coincidence to be attending a workshop with Michelle's lovely friend, who was a lot of fun to be around. The world can be such a small place.

  4. Oh my, that's a lot of rock/rock like problems to overcome and you've done so beautifully. I follow Rusty Jones' blog, he just spent some time at the Grand Canyon, today's posting includes a photo of him painting: http://wwwrustyjonesstudiocom.blogspot.com/, it reminds me of your beautiful painting here.
