Last Light Escalante

"Last Light Escalante", 8 x 12 In, Oil on Panel
I still have a few more Utah paintings since I painted ahead for the holidays. This one is basically about color patterns. The snow is still on the ground here around Puget Sound and my cats are flummoxed by this cold white stuff--and I'm still dreaming about the warm colors of the Southwest.

Purchase this unframed painting.
Contact me if you would like to purchase a plein air frame.


  1. You have really captured the light on those red cliffs. Exactly as I remember them.
    Happy Thanksgiving Day!

  2. Sally--I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving, too! Thanks so much for your comment.
