Lake Powell

1.58 Lake Powell. Painting progression. Painting Lake Powell, I always feel very conflicted. I want to show the beauty of what used to be Glen Canyon, but I also want to make a statement about what has become of it since the construction of the Glen Canyon Dam. What I really want to create is an incomplete landscape, like Pompeii buried beneath volcanic ash. However, as with my last attempt at making a commentary on the impact of the glen canyon dam, this one is not visually compelling.
