Painting and drawing this landscape in plein aire on the canyon's edge and finishing in studio presented the immensity of space to be offered to a limited size canvas. With a looseness in brushstroke and limited pallete I worked to illustrate this openness and vastness or space with the newness of morning light.
Making art for Daniel Kanow is of key importance in finding clarity and balance. He loves to paint and draw expressively with intent of raw emotion. The application of paint and use of color are tantamount for Daniel to represent the present moment. Daniel’s interest lies in the deep places of emotion that tell personal and universal narratives of fear, pain, love and beauty. His art acts as a conduit or bridge to fill emotional voids. Daniel’s process is dynamic and he invites the viewer to immerse themselves into their own stories so that the artwork may create a personal resonance. Daniel Kanow lives in Telluride, Colorado with his family. Art, family, and wilderness are his anchors for inspiration and motivation.
