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.

Ebullient, exuberant, free — the elusive being flits from rock to path to wherever we encounter her next.
County Road — not quite the John Denver song, but the message is the same — there are these hidden, isolated roads that few people drive on or walk, and when you discover them, they’re yours.
County Road is available at Steve Henderson Fine Art as an original watercolor (10.5 x 13.5) and as a limited edition print.
Real cowboys still exist except, often, they don’t have much to do with cows. I suppose just knowing how to interact well with a horse is enough these days. Time Out depicts a modern-day horse whisperer on a moment with his mount.
Time Out is available as both an original watercolor painting and as a limited edition print at Steve Henderson Fine Art.
