About the Painting

Driving high in the Colorado Rockies in search of autumnal leaves, I saw this vista spreading before me, awash in all the colors of autumn. I used wide, expressive brush strokes to capture the feeling of being out in the open air, surrounded by vibrant, vivid color.

"Colorado Heights" was created on 1-1/2" canvas, with the painting continued around the edges. The painting arrives framed in a gold floater frame, ready to hang.
