About the Painting

The "Mittens" at Monument Valley are some of the most dramatic buttes on the Colorado Plateau. These amazing red rock formations are most beautiful and sunrise or sunset, when their colors become even more brilliant and saturated. This painting captures the dramatic desertscape with loose, impressionistic brush strokes.

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