Hiking in Cedar Breaks National Park inspired this painting of October-hued cottonwoods. A peaceful and secluded breakfast by the side of this quiet brook allowed a restful moment of contemplation and awe for the stunning surroundings.

This painting was created over 24 karat gold leaf, applied directly to the canvas as an "underpainting." The thin sheets of genuine gold gleam with subtle light from between the brush strokes, catching the eye and making the painting seem to glow from within.

Like all the 24 Karat Collection paintings, this piece was painted on 3/4" canvas and arrives framed in a classic gilded frame, ready to hang.

Exhibited: St George Art Museum, Utah, in a solo exhibition celebrating the National Park's centennial: Erin Hanson's Painted Parks, 2016.
