About the Painting

Following the Colorado River north of Moab and Arches National Park, early one morning in January, I discovered this beautiful vista of ragged buttes and red rock plateaus that caught the brilliant orange of a winter sunrise. The Colorado River was wide and smooth, reflecting all the ambient color. This painting captures the joyful beauty that I love to paint, that which brings me back to Utah time and time again to find a new subject to capture.

This painting has been framed in hand-carved, gold leaf floater frame.

Exhibited The Orange Show, The Erin Hanson Gallery, Los Angeles, CA. 2016.

This painting is available from The Medicine Man Gallery, in Tuscon. You can visit their website here.
