Utah Aspens

Contact Gallery

This painting was inspired by a recent hike through Cedar Breaks National Park, a southern Utah gem near Zion Park. The electric color of the aspens in autumn bloom glittered and shimmered in the October air. This painting captures the motion of the landscape with a loose brush stroke and vivid composition.
