Artist Statement

The original painting for this print was created using watercolor, ink, and genuine copper leaf. Originally inspired by brilliant sunsets across Utah’s landscape, this painting evolved into being about something much more. Like many pieces, I took a break from working on this midway through. It sat partially completed and tucked away for many months, until the sudden passing of my grandfather. We were very close, and in the midst of my grief, the rest of this painting poured out of me.

My grandfather was a bright light in my life, a safe haven, a trusted friend. I have never met anyone else that could fill a room with their humor, kindness, and personality the way that he could. This piece is a tribute to his beautiful shining spirit, and a wish for what comes next.

The title of this piece comes from the song “Where Rainbows Never Die” by the Steeldrivers. For me, death is the great mystery. I don’t claim any faithful beliefs about the afterlife, but I like to imagine that my grandparents are together in some technicolor place/space vibrating with love, west of where the sun sets, where rainbows never die.

About Giclee

Giclee signifies the highest quality print available, and is known for unparalleled detail in reproducing orginal artwork. This piece is printed with pigment inks on a 100% cotton rag, acid-free, lignin-free, fine art paper, which I personally picked for its rich color rendering and toothy texture, to mirror the feeling of the original painting.

This reproduction is archival (museum quality) and will stay true to its original rendering well beyond the point at which other prints may start to fade. To ensure the longevity of this piece, it should be framed behind glass.
