Desert canyon views stretch towards the horizon in this painting of Arizona. The springtime rains make the desert floor lush with color, a beautiful contrast to the red rock cliffs. The brush strokes in this painting are loose and abstract, creating a celebration of color and life across the canvas.

This painting was done on 1-1/2" canvas, with the painting continued around the edges for a 3-dimensional effect. The piece has been framed in a custom-made, open impressionism frame, and it arrives ready to hang.

Exhibited: Open Impressionism: The Works of Erin Hanson, The Goddard Center, OK. 2018.
