Gordon Brown, Western Colorado, 36 x 90, oil on panel. Framed dimensions are 51 x 105.
Of the number of awards presented to him, winning of the Arts for the Parks Invitational was most rewarding. In celebration of the Grand Canyon National Park’s 75th anniversary, some 360 paintings were submitted for review including Gordon’s Grand Prize winner, “Breaking of Light”.
The soothing elements of Gordon’s paintings are a mere reflection of his life as a soft-spoken family man of great Faith. The abstract compositional elements, combined with old world glazing techniques, illustrate the dedication and passion he has toward his lifelong profession.
