Cedar Breaks National Monument

studio, oil, 24" x 30", 'A Slice of Cedar Breaks'

Cedar Breaks National Monument is located near Cedar City, Utah. It is a fantastic natural amphitheater of eroded rock stretching across 3 miles, with a depth of over 2,000 feet. The elevation of the rim of the amphitheater is over 10,000 feet above sea level.

This spectacular wonder has been challenging for me to paint. I needed to focus on one section to record the essence of my visit to Cedar Breaks, as the light was constantly shifting and changing the formations. Hence, 'A Slice of Cedar Breaks'.
