Virgin Beauty in Zion
Watercolor Painting of Virgin River in Zion National Park by Roland Lee
About this Item
It is hard to believe that the deep canyon of Zion National Park was carved over time by this peaceful Virgin River. In the spring the river can be a raging torrent carrying millions of tons of rocks and boulders down from the mountains. But in the fall the Virgin’s waters are gentle and calm as they meander quietly beneath the yellow cottonwoods, and under the ever-present gaze of “The Watchman” high above her. This painting was displayed at the Bingham Gallery located at the former studio of Maynard Dixon in Mt. Carmel Junction Utah. The show ran in conjunction with the Utah Plein Air invitational “In the Footsteps of Thomas Moran.” celebrating the Zion National Park Centennial.
