About the Painting

A wind-swept bristlecone pine stands guard over Monument Valley, home to some of the most striking rock formations in the Southwest. The multi-colored red earth is a dramatic contrast against the summer blue sky. The brush strokes in this painting are loose and impressionistic, creating a mosaic of color and texture across the canvas.
