Monument Valley oil painting by contemporary impressionism artist Erin Hanson

Summer Monument



30 x 24 in

Contact Gallery

Monument Valley is captured in vivid hues of blue, red and purple. The dramatic buttes, called "The Mittens" from their unique shape, stand out starkly against the summer sky. The brush strokes are loose and impressionistic, alive with color and motion.

This painting was created on 1-1/2" canvas, and it arrives framed in a custom gold floater frame.
