Artist's Statement
“I am particularly interested in unique lighting effects and how these effects reflect, refract, diffuse and obscure detail. It is the ethereal quality of light that intrigues me. In painting natural or inanimate objects, I am constantly trying to discover and interpret interesting design, shapes, and color harmonies to stimulate the eye. Elevating the human spirit and arousing a sense of discovery is what excites me as an artist.”
-- Peter Adams

Description
I did this painting while on a trip in 2014 to southern Utah right near the Colorado River crossing of Lee’s Ferry after a major rainstorm. I particularly enjoyed seeing the desert come alive with color and the sudden formation of a little steam after the downpour. The landscape with its distant haze and massive and distinctive geological structures made me think of Ancient Egypt.
