15.5" x 13.5" framed. Artist comments: "One thing about being a landscape artist is that I can never turn off my artist's eye. It is constantly cataloguing everything I see in terms of color, composition, shape, and value, and I never know when my eye will behold something that my muse decides should be a painting. This particular view is one such instance. My wife and I were returning from lunch at Loews Ventana Canyon, hiking along a trail that connects that hotel with the property around Ventana Canyon Lodge. A casual glance south at just the right moment revealed this view to me, bright and colorful in the afternoon sun. It was late November, and what caught my eye immediately was the striking variety of vivid color in the vegetation and the quality of the light. I really enjoy little surprises like this subject - they prove that there is beauty to be seen everywhere if you know how look." - Stephen C. Datz
