Wild West Plains to the Pacific

obata_settingsunNew show at the Legion of Honor!  I had to post this piece as it reminds me so much of my photo in the header on my website.  This amazing color wood cut by Chiura Obata is called “Setting Sun on Sacramento Valley, California”, 1930. I took my photo a few years ago in Park City, Utah,  looking towards the Wasatch Mountains.  I have to see this piece in person.  I’ve no idea how it was executed, it is so vibrant!  The show opens June 18th so buy your tickets now!
