Inspired by our trip to the desert parks of Utah earlier this month, Dan did a sketch of a sandstone arch that resembled two lovers embracing. I liked the sketch and ran with it to make this painting. The whole time we were in Utah we couldn't believe how unreal the scenery of the Colorado Plateau was. We kept thinking that Moebius must have been inspired by these places, so this painting is definitely a bit of an homage to the French bandes dessinées master as well as to the mind bending grandeur of this desert landscape. If you ever have the chance to go to Utah - DO IT!
We sent this painting off to Detroit for the LAX/DTW exhibition being curated by Thinkspace Gallery. The exhibition, featuring over 80 artists, is being held at Innerstate Gallery and runs June 6th through July 4th, 2015.
