Glen Canyon Dam

6″ x 8″

I first saw this dam as a child in 1964, as it was being built. I never envisioned that I would have the opportunity to paint it from the bottom looking up, as I did here, standing on a sand bar in the middle of the river. I’ve always been awestruck by the beauty of this engineering masterpiece, which changed the wild, muddy Colorado River forever.
