Big Canyon River

Big Canyon River


This original acrylic painting is a vivid, expressionist depiction of a river flowing from the mouth of a canyon.  Inspired by the beauty of the Salt Lake Valley, this contemporary nature painting contains creative elements of Fauvism & Impressionism.  Although it is a smaller canvas, this painting packs a serious punch of character and color!

A glowing pink and orange sky captures the fiery sunset over the mountains, casting a red rim across the peaks.  The jagged veins of foothills are expressed in contrasting deep and mint greens.  A stormy, churning river is captured in glossy jade colors as it leaves the canyon and enters the valley.  
The artwork is finished with a double layer of varnish, making the colors even more lustrous, & providing lasting protection.

Painting is sold unframed; image continues around the edges so it may be hung as-is.

May be wired to hang at no additional charge, simply request this in the custom text field upon ordering.
