Caught up with one of my painting heroes last week. That would be this guy.
And here's another beauty by Gunnar as well.
Note the paint brushes stick in the ground. Next time I go up there I am bringing a paint brush to stick in the ground as well.
The Widforss Trail on the North Rim of the Grand Canyon was named for Gunnar Widforss. The trailhead is approximately 3 miles north of the North Rim Lodge. The trail follows the canyon rim and meanders through the forest to emerge at Widforss Point. Widforss Point is a narrow, wooded promontory half a mile southeast of the end of the Widforss trail.
I want to go visit this trail. Meanwhile, my old, studio compadre, Ed Mell, owns a Gunnar Widforss original that portrays the North Rim area that has the trail named for him.
