Last Light in Zion

Last Light in Zion by Steve Henderson of Steve Henderson Fine Art

It is just before sunset, and we are in Zion National Park, Utah. Not far away, crowds of people are still milling about, but one doesn’t have to walk far to leave them behind, even on the popular Emerald Pools trail.

The moment lasts just that — a moment — a moment of silence, a moment of being alone, a moment of the sun sending one last ray through a space in the rocks, lighting the trees and casting shadows into the shadows.

Last Light in Zion is an original oil painting by Steve Henderson of Steve Henderson Fine Art. 30 x 30 on canvas, framed, it is showing until May 19 in the National Paint the Parks Exhibition at Wildlife Experience in Parker, CO. After that, it will be featured at the Coutts Art Museum in El Dorado, KS.

In addition to being available as an original oil painting, Last Light in Zion is also available as an open edition art print at Great Big Canvas. It is available for licensing through Art Licensing, Vermont. Last Light in Zion is one of three paintings by Steve Henderson accepted to the 2012-2013 Paint the Parks Competition.

Ocean Breeze

Ocean Breeze by Steve Henderson of Steve Henderson Fine Art

Emotional Realism — what is it? Ocean Breeze epitomizes this term by its strong color, warm tones, sense of freedom and joy. One can hear the surf and feel the breeze as a young woman lifts her arms to the setting sun of the Pacific Ocean. Or, are we on the opposite coast of North America, and she greets the rising sun of a new day?

Ocean Breeze is available in the following ways:

Seaside Story — Signed, Limited Edition Print

When life becomes overwhelmingly complex and complicated — after a national election, say — then it’s time to focus on the small, simple things of life, because these are the ones that ultimately matter.

A child’s laugh, the feeling of her arms entwined around your neck as she snuggles as close as she physically can, a good story, companionship, the kiss of the breeze on your cheek — these small, eternal things are what make life worth waking up to each morning.

Seaside Story, which embodies this sense of peace and well being, is now available as a signed, limited edition print through Steve Henderson Fine Art.
