About the Painting

Impressionistic brush strokes capture the beautiful color and motion of Zion National Park. This painting was inspired by the Colorado River west of the park entrance. This small painting was done on linen board, and it has been framed in a hand-carved, plein air frame.

This painting is hanging in the Impressions of Zion exhibition, and this piece is available for viewing at the Zion Art Museum, in Springdale, UT. The exhibition dates are June 9th - August 27th, 2017. All sold paintings will be shipped after the exhibition closes at the end of August.
