Roland Lee paints nature at its most grand.
Out in the Utah wilderness, Lee captures the magic of barren deserts and empty canyons that for thousands of years have been abandoned to the elements which formed them. With his color-rich pallet, he brings us pictures from the edge that many of us will never be able to see in person.
The seasoned plein air painter was invited to demonstrate in the annual Geology Festival at Bryce Canyon national park in June 2017. This was the first time an artist was invited to demonstrate in the event’s eleven year history, and guests to the park received a pleasant surprise.
Not only did the guests get a look at an artist at work but they also got to get their hands dirty; with paint!
Rangers brought out tables and paper while Lee supplied some markers and crayons for kids to work with. Others joined in as well, including parents, park rangers, and even some local art students.
