About the Painting

Monument Valley, located at the Four Corners region on the Colorado Plateau, is one of the most dramatic national monuments in the Southwest. The striking red rock buttes and spires loom up from the desert floor, made of seeming fragile sandstone, and yet withstanding the eons. This scene from Monument Valley is captured in thick, impressionistic brush strokes, in Hanson's signature Open Impressionism style.

This painting was created on 1-1/2" canvas, with the painting continued around the edges of the canvas. The piece has been framed in a gold floater frame and arrives ready to hang.
