About the Painting

Inspired by Arches National Park, this painting captures the brilliant color of dawn light hitting the Park's enormous and majestic fins of red sandstone. The abstract style of the painting perfectly renders the bold statement shapes of these ancient formations.

This painting was created on 1-1/2"-deep canvas, with the painting continued around the edges. It has been framed in a gold floater frame.
