Green River Canyon Oil Painting

Green River Canyon

Oil on Linen                  24 x 18 Inches                   $2100 Framed

The Green River meanders through 3 states beginning high in the mountains of Wyoming, passing into Utah, then briefly into Colorado before returning into Utah, eventually passing through the dinosaur valley region on its way to joining the Colorado River in southern Utah. I went on a 5-day rafting trip from Colorado into Utah a few years back. Although, I was able to paint twice on the trip, this painting was done entirely in the studio from a reference photo. The raft pictured here is our lead raft. It was truly an amazing trip to see these canyons in 3-D from the surface of the river and to experience it firsthand.
