As you enter Zion National Park from the south entrance you pass The Watchman. You then come to the old visitor center that has phenomenal views in every direction. To the west is my painting of the Towers of the Virgin. To the north-east is what we see in this painting. A group of towering multi-hued sandstone cliffs. Nearest we see Mount Spry's brown and rust crags. Just behind it we see just a hint of The Twin Brothers whose upper most peaks are white sandstone. Just left of center is The Mountain of The Sun.
I decided to make dramatic changes in my sunny afternoon reference photo by featuring a Spring snow storm approaching from the north. The storm occurred on Friday of April 28, 2017. I love the diagonal lines in the layers of stone formations and decided to have my clouds follow the same line. We were in Bryce Canyon at the time as the storm snow flurries traveled south to here and all the way to Lake Powell. To be in Zion on a day like this with fast moving cloud shadows dancing on the cliffs, the vivid colors and massive vertical heights, just makes one's heart soar like an eagle. I put all my heart and soul into this painting as I have had a love affair with Zion for over 30 years.
