Erin and I celebrated our first anniversary in Vegas; we had a great time. We love the Cirque De Soleil shows and got to see something most every night. On Wednesday we drove the 3-4 hours to the Grand Canyon. There were amazing sights all along the way and I recognized so many trees, brush, etc. and the general feel of the desert that I've admired in many western painter's work.
I was able to "break in" my new Thumb Box at Eagle Point (see attached pic.) The shuttle driver mentioned that the light and colors change minute to minute. I assumed he was exaggerating but that light and those hues were almost constantly on the move! I left with a little 3"x8" painting of Eagle Point itself. It was a thrill to paint there and I'm happy to report that the Thumb Box did a great job :)
