"Deep" - Fine Art Print Release
My latest limited edition fine-art print for sale is titled simply “Deep”. This print of the Grand Canyon measures 26”x40”. I’m offering a sweet deal on this one: The print custom framed with your choice of natural, whitewash or black finish for $250! (Framed size is roughly 31”X46”)
I recommend letting me frame this print since the cost of framing a print of this size can be very high and my frames are of very high quality. I use hand picked wormy maple that I mill from it’s rough state and conservation quality materials including 100% cotton rag museum board for mounting. In other words, you can pick up one of my large sized works ready to hang for $250 out the door! If you’ve been waiting to buy one of my larger artworks this might be your chance!
I’m taking orders now so let me know if you’re interested. I’m happy to give quotes for shipping. I’ve attached a more in-depth description of the piece below.
Also, the rumors are true. I’m organizing an Artist Expedition this summer to Wyoming - 8 artists, two weeks in the deep desert, one awesome show! It’s going to be really amazing so watch for the launch announcement and the gallery openings this fall.
Thanks again for all of your past support, and I hope this note finds you doing well.

About This Print
My first trip to the Grand Canyon was back during my college days at the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque. Two close friends flew into town from Ohio, and we then did a circle that included the south rim and some tributaries. The Grand Canyon should really be called “Grand Canyons” because each tributary carves its own chasm and then dumps into the Colorado River.
The River is visible, but it takes time to follow the Canyon walls down to the thin ribbon that forms “U” shaped bends. The real shock for me came when we were driving east around the Canyon and stopped near the side of the road. There was nobody there. It was dead silent. Just the burned out hulk of an old abandoned vehicle near the straight many hundreds of feet drop down. We all eased slowly to the edge. The sudden gusts of wind making us shy away from the cliff and causing stomach flutters. It was a fraction the size of the overlook at the South Rim of Grand Canyon National Park.
That was the moment I began to understand the Grand Canyon’s massiveness. It would take months or maybe years to really explore and understand that place. I almost named this print “The Place Everyone Should Visit at Least Once” but instead chose the easier to write title “Deep”. I went back and hand painted the river with silver shimmer ink. I like that you might not notice the river the first time you see this print.
As many of you know, I’m crazy about borders on my artwork. The border on this print was inspired by one of my all-time favorite books, The Way to Rainy Mountain by N. Scott Momaday. His father did some line drawings for the book and this border is inspired by one of those drawings.
I hope you get the chance to experience the Canyon in solitude. My advice is to pack a lunch and spend the day just sitting in a quiet spot at the edge of the Canyon or hiking a less traveled route. If you have the time, the North Rim of the Grand Canyon is less crowded and cooler in the summer. I recommend it.
