Storm over Sheeprock Mountains

Storm over Sheeprock Mountains


This painting is a vivid expressionist landscape capturing thunderclouds rolling over the Sheeprock Mountains.  Featuring vivid colors and a dynamic composition full of glossy texture, this piece is driven by the romantic ideal of the sublime, and nature's formidable beauty. The desert is a constant inspiration to me-- a source of wildness, wisdom, and quiet strength. The composition is based on a desert landscape where I often go on adventures--the Pony Express trail outside of Salt Lake City, Utah.  

The foreboding sky with rolling clouds is balanced by the flat, sandy landscape, and the two are anchored together by blue tones scattered throughout the piece. The hard and soft lines work dynamically together, creating a piece that seems to evolve each time you look at it.

Colors include candylike pastels, complemented by rich indigo blue and honeyed sand colors.


This piece has all sides painted so no frame is necessary; it will look great propped on a shelf or hung on a wall. 

Mixed media on stretched gallery wrapped canvas, sealed with UV protective gloss.  Can be wired to hang at no additional charge, simply request it when you order.


11x14" and 1.5" deep
