"Castle Valley Thunder 1.0 - 2.0"
"Each of the two Castle Valley Thunder versions
shown above is available and looks from my view, pretty
amazing in its own right. This is the first
time I have offered such a choice-it's an experiment. What
is unique about the work is that it was created from 2
original desert oil paintings: Castle Tower 2.0 and Round Mountain
2.0 that were NOT in fact connected. Indeed there was some
300-400 ft. difference in elevation for each original image.
To create this as if it were one continuous seamless piece
as viewed from a single elevation was very tricky. So, this
image, although not an oil painting, is none-the-less, an
original piece of art.
Since the original oil paintings are fairly large (24 x 32 in. each), the panoramic images above can be printed much larger than the 30 x 80" mentioned below and and lose nothing as to detail, clarity or impact (e.g. 56 x 150 in.) It would be like being there! The larger the image, the more of my technique is revealed.
This desert scene is of Castle Valley east of Moab, Utah. Western art is my passion and I particularly love the red rock desert around Moab. I got to see this scene every day for several summers/autumns while I was perched atop our drill rig on our mining claims on the south rim of Castle Valley (Wilson Mesa). Mind blowing!"
(NOTE: the prices above are for a continuous panoramic image. This image is also available as a diptych (two pieces) call for pricing. This image ONLY exists as a Giclée.
