The Bond of the Wildernessis part of the Travel Series.
The Travel Series is in response to trips that I have taken. Everyone remembers different pieces of a memory through all different senses. Sometimes memories come back to me through smell, or a certain feel of the air or feel of my body. Most of the time my memory is triggered by visual pieces from a trip that pop up in my head. These are the pieces that I focus on in my paintings. It could be the mountains, the trees, the structures of the buildings or houses. Sometimes it is the way that the shadows hit the ground. To others this becomes an artistic chaotic structure, but to me it is a visual journal of the places that I have been and the things that I have discovered.
ABOUT THIS SPECIFIC PRINT
Island In The Sky, The Bond Of The Wilderness, The Sun On My Skin, and The Edge Of The Earth are all based on a trip to Canyonlands National Park, Arches National Park, and a backpacking trip down to the Colorado River at Grand Canyon National Park. This trip was over Thanksgiving week in 2018 and only 8 months after my near death accident rock climbing. It was going to be the true test of "getting back out there" I spend the day with friends in Canyonlands walking around and soaking in the scenery and the sun. It felt so good to get out of town and to get back to nature. It also felt like such an amazing accomplishment to make it to the bottom of the Grand Canyon. I have never been so thankful to be alive as I have in moments like these.
