Art in Our National Parks

The Artist in Residence Programs in our Parks

An Artist in Residence in Our National Parks since 2015, I have been blessed to be chosen to spend time at Acadia, Crater Lake, Glacier, Mesa Verde, Bighorn Canyon and at Capitol Reef.  The application process is explained elsewhere on this blog.  

The initial Artist in Residence (AIR) at Capitol Reef National Park, in Utah, I spent four weeks exploring and making art in the Park.  While in residence, I spend a few days upon arrival scouting scenery, locations, and light.  I sketch ideas with my iPhone, and return later for image-making with my Nikon gear too.  Here's a short video produced entirely on an iPhone.

While in residence at Capitol Reef, I was blessed with monsoon season.  The daily cloud show fed me.  Recording cloud shadows and moving clouds are a large part of my portfolio.  I was able to explore locations and make lots of time-lapse clips using that setting on my iPhone.  While  in the Park,  I spent hours photographing the sky, both day and night, and recorded hundreds of video sequences of time lapse and still images.  My Lightroom portfolio of the adventure includes 13,000 images and videos.  I have lots of editing and developing to do.  I rarely edit while in residence, instead waiting till I return to my studio in Durango. Click on the link below to see a video of the silversmith work created while in residence.
