About the Painting

Zion National Park is one of the most beautiful places in southern Utah. This painting captures the dawn rising over the Court of the Patriarchs with thick paint and loose, impressionistic brush strokes. This is a unique painting done over 24kt gold leaf, so you can see the glimmer of gold peeking through behind the brush strokes.

This painting was done on 3/4" stretched canvas. It has been framed in a hand-carved gold impressionist frame.

This painting will be shown in the The Red Rock Show at The Erin Hanson Gallery, June 16th, 2018. Click here to view the other Red Rock paintings.
