Daniel Smith has created a paint from the Arizona's desert, Sedona’s rocks. The resulting Primatek pigment has excellent -lightfastness. It is a rich red that granulates beautifully. The mineral Sedona Genuine is made of is an aggregate of small granules of tectosilicate, like quartz or feldspar sand that is deposited in layers by wind and water and cemented together under pressure. It has a gummy consistency out of the tube but can be wetted down and made to mingle in washes and layers with other colors.

“I am a contemplative artist who has trouble accessing verbal skills. Finding the right words to talk about the amazing things I observe around me can be frustrating. It is much more natural for me to pick up a paintbrush, some embroidery floss or my camera when I wish to share some new discovery. The artwork I create is meant to be enjoyed on whatever level the viewer experiences it and not layered with complex meaning. Feathers, fur, flowers and the incredible variation I find in wildlife not only inspire me, but compel me to share every nuance with you.
