About the Painting

This painting was inspired by a hike I did to Delicate Arch (in Arches National Park) a few years ago. To catch the early morning light on Delicate Arch, I awoke at 3am to begin the hike up the sandstone slabs that culminated in the rock formations around the arch. The brilliant colors and high vantage point, surrounded by the quiet solitude of the park, have been ingrained in my mind ever since.

"Delicate Arch" was created on 1-1/2" canvas, with the sides of the canvas painted as a continuation of the painting. The piece arrives framed in a 23kt gold leaf floater frame.
