Piece description from the artist
It's often been said in the "art world" that there's nothing new under the sun, implying that anything you do has been done before. For this reason I can't seem to make myself create art for the sake of art. Nature is the way around this feeling. Has anyone ever painted this particular bend of a canyon in the middle of the desert? It's comforting and exciting to be quite certain that no one has! Also, whenever I paint somewhere I've been I get to return to that place whenever I look at my work.
