Artist Statement
“What a Little Sunlight Will Do was painted from an on location study I did while on a mule pack trip into the Sierras. I was camping in the Big Pine Canyon area of the John Muir Wilderness, which is my favorite area to paint in the Sierras. The painting depicts the dramatic moment when the first morning sunlight climbs above the surrounding peaks and illuminates the cliffs. The nights at that elevation can be quite chilly so the warming rays of the first sun are especially welcome. From dark to light and from cold to warm not to mention its stunning visual beauty, these are all of the wonderful things that a little sunlight can do!”
