    I wanted to mix up the selection of work so I decided to paint a 
still life and to do it from life instead of shooting the setup and painting
from my display monitor like how I do most of my studio work.

"Grand Canyon Afternoon" 12' x 16' oil on panel by Mick McGinty



Grand Canyon Afternoon

   This painting was from a trip to the 
Grand Canyon in 2012 to meet and 
watch some plain air painting friends 
 of mine. 
    I painted a couple of pieces there
and took pictures to paint in my studio 
later. This is one of them.

"Is That a Piece of Sky?" 11"x14" by Mick McGinty

"Is That a Piece of Sky?"
This hen reminds me of the fairy tale of Chicken Little who warned everyone that the sky was falling. It actually comes from a shot I took at the Box R Ranch in Oregon two years ago. Click on the image for a larger view.
