Morning Glory, Original Oil Painting on Linen, 24" x 18"

$800.00 $0.00

Experiencing "Morning Glory" caused me to pause and meditate on the enduring quality of the canyon in a transitory world. The river, unleashed from the dam above, washes down the canyon, revealing huge boulders that line the canyon floor. The dam, held up by the walls of the canyon, reminds me that we are stronger together.

"Morning Glory," is an original oil on Belgian linen, 24"x18" created in 2021, framed in a floater frame, and stained with a warm bourbon finish, ready to hang. Add a little nature and authenticity to your space with this impactful and muted Rocky Mountain statement piece. Inspired by the natural elements present in the canyon, your new art comes with a certificate of authenticity, with a wax monogrammed stamp from my studio, adorned with hand dried wildflowers.

About the Eleven Mile Collection:

I love nature. It's the place where I find balance, peace, and renewal. Inspired by the seasons, the sound of the flowing water, I carry with me visions of wildflowers, and the longing for freedom to roam and explore. This art was created as part of my "Eleven Mile Canyon Collection." Discover more about the collection, my process and inspiration at Shirley Bales Fine Art.

Shirley Bales, artist

Hi there! I'm Shirley. While I was practically born with a paintbrush in hand, I formally studied fine art under an accomplished forensic portrait artist and other notable illustrators in the 1990's. My favorite thing to do is paint outside. I  paint in mixed media and oil and love color! My work resides in thousands of private collections nationwide, and I am so grateful.
