About the Painting

This familiar scene of Rainbow Mountains from the 13-mile loop road of Red Rock Canyon always brings happy memories of rock climbing to the artist's mind. The flat desert floor ends abruptly in towering sandstone cliffs, the shadows cool and blue, keeping cool even during the hot summer months. This painting brings to life the beauty and emotion of seeing Rainbow Mountains for the first time.
