About the Painting

About the painting:
Waiting behind the Zion Human History Museum in the dark before dawn, I watched the sky slowly lighten into hues of pink and pale blue. The distant Court of the Patriarchs finally caught the light of sunrise, glowing deep and rich with saturated color.

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