The Abyss Grand Canyon

The Abyss Overlook, located on the Grand Canyon’s South Rim, offers an almost vertical view down into the canyon. I’ve done many paintings from the rim, and I consider “The Abyss” one of the most breathtaking overlooks in Grand Canyon National Park.

This painting was based on a field study I made while standing (at a safe distance) near the edge of the rim.

The original acrylic painting was sold to a private collector by an art gallery in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
