The leaves rustle and the grass whispers, while the sun begins to go down in the west. "Live Oak Canyon" is full of trees, buzzing insects, and rocky dirt paths that make miniature dust storms under my feet. I sketch and photograph, but imagination, and memory remain my best reference. This painting is on linen which has been mounted on a cradled wood panel. It comes ready to hang.
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!”

The painting was purchased because of its colors, the theme and Mr. Sullivan's profile. Mr. Sullivan thank you for this beautiful artwork which will be enjoyed by the family for years to come. The promptness in shipping this art work to me is appreciated.- M Sobko
I purchased Still Water Shadows. I just completed getting it framed and it looks lovely in my living room. Every time I look at it, it reminds of growing up in upstate New York. Thanks.- K Harrison
