'the Deacon - Cathedral Valley'

Another painting on a wood panel .. has a more uniform surface when painted than on canvas.  Neither good or bad .. just different.  I do like the stiffness of the wood tho.

This studio piece was inspired from one of my many expeditions into the northern area of Capitol Reef .. Cathedral Valley.  A massive imposing formation is found along the dusty road .. high on a crest about a third of the way to the Temples.  Holding court over the vast rocky landscape .. the Deacon.
