48 x 30 in



Contact Gallery

Driving through the open plains of Utah's high desert one morning, I came atop a small hill overlooking a wide expanse of landscape in every direction. In the far distance, a lake shimmered between the peaks of distant buttes. Nearby the sagebrush curved in interesting shapes and glimmered with pale blues and lavenders.

"Utah Blues" was created on 1-1/2" stretched linen. The painting arrives framed in a hand-made burnished silver floater frame.
