One of the things I wanted to achieve with this painting was to convey the beautiful canyons of the western United States in a unique way. In addition to my own painting style, choosing a thick, stormy sky cooled down the scene and gave the piece an interesting play on color. This painting is on gallery wrapped linen with finished edges. It comes ready to hang.

Getting to Know Jill

Jill E Poyerd brings “peaceful, contemplative moments” to life on the canvas. She approaches the canvas with little preparation, instead allowing herself total freedom to create. Both her watercolor and oil painting works depict gorgeous scenes of nature with a style distinctly her own. Something as common as a tree appears soft and ethereal through Jill’s painterly style. Fun fact: she’s quite a history buff and loves reading historical biographies.
