I was captivated by the wonderful contrast of lime green trees and the maroon shadows of the canyon wall. The ancient landscapes around Canyonlands National Park are outstanding. The deep, rich colors in this work were developed by applying more than 40 transparent coats of glaze. This piece is on a gallery wrapped canvas and the painting continues around the edges. It comes varnished and ready to hang.

Getting to Know Kent

There are more places Kent Sullivan would like to paint than he ever will be able. Employing many of the Hudson River School methods in his landscapes, Kent captures the ephemeral interactions of clouds, sun and earth with his delicate use of color and gesture. His work is published in two prominent books: "Art of the National Parks" and "Picturing Florida." He has lectured at museums and been sought after by many large corporations. “Several years ago I had the incredible fortune of being part of the NASA art program. Five paintings are now part of the Smithsonian Collection. At one gathering at the Kennedy Space Center, Leonard Nimoy came up and asked me for my autograph!”
