Canyon 1 pastels

My first visit to the Grand Canyon was in the late winter of 1978. I spent 3 days hiking the canyon and indeed it lived up to its name; the majesty and grandeur was beyond description. Of course, this was before the ubiquitous cell phone and I was without a camera, but I was never without my sketch book. At every turn I had to capture, as best I could, all that was before me. Those sketches became the subjects for these pastels that comprise my first Grand Canyon Series.
