20 x 20 in



Contact Gallery

During a 50-mile backpack across Zion National Park, I discovered many inspiring landscapes. One of my favorite was Hop Valley, a day's hike from Kolob Canyon. The flat wash of the canyon floor was bounded by short, steep cliffs on either side, creating dramatic shadows behind the autumn cottonwoods. This painting has been framed in a gold floater frame.

This painting was displayed at the Zion Art Museum (located in Zion National Park) during the summer of 2017, for the exhibition Impressions of Zion.
