Inspired by backpacking in the early morning through Hop Valley, near Zion National Park, this painting captures the early morning light filtering through the autumn cottonwood trees. The red rock cliffs surround the valley, a beautiful contrast to the golden leaves.
This painting was created in the Open-impressionist style, with loose brush strokes and thickly applied oil paint. The mosaic quality of the brushwork creates a delicate stained glass appearance to the landscape, adding a dreamlike feel.
