About the Painting

About the painting:
About a day's hike east of Kolob Canyon, you end up in Hop Valley wash. For many miles, the trans-Zion trail leads you through soft, orange sand. The rivulets of water running through the wash reflect the surrounding cliffs and cottonwoods.

"Hop Valley Wash" was created on gallery-depth canvas, with the painting continued around the edges. The piece arrives framed in a contemporary gold floater frame.
