Arizona artist Robert Peters painted this piece standing on the south rim at the Yavapai Point. From there, one of the most prominent geologic features of the canyon is the triangular summit of the Zoroaster Temple, which is shown glowing in the warm sun.
The Grand Canyon is particularly dramatic in late winter and early spring when snow coveres the rim of the canyon setting the lower canyon ablaze with color. A foot or more of snow can fall over night, and the next morning, low clouds may mask the interior of the canyon from view. But, suddenly a shaft of sunlight finds its way through and the area it hits is suddenly fiery - alive with color and light. Professional photographers may wait hours in the freezing temperatures for just the right shot. Meanwhile, those on the canyon floor are suffering temperatures in the 90s. In many ways, the Canyon is full of extremes and dichotomies. Is there any spot on earth as dramatic or thrilling?
“I often seek out the story in a landscape,” says Peters. He notes that “the repetition of shape in ridges” and “jagged rocks in juxtaposition with soft snow” are just a couple aspects that interest him in mentally forming a composition that will draw and move the viewer’s eye to take in all of nature captured on his canvas. The artist also notes that “a judicious use of detail” makes up the light and delicate aspects of his works. The excellent ability to orchestrate color and values gives Peters’ art depth and emotion. “That’s where their (my paintings) atmosphere comes from,” adds the artist. “In the studio, I’m composing, rearranging, and reliving.”
