Red Wash Balanced Rock

Moab is known for the famous Balanced Rock in Arches National Park. It’s so famous, it doesn’t even need any clarification on where it is. This is a painting of the far lesser know Red Wash Balanced Rock. If you stood next to it, you would take up maybe 1/10th of its height. I kind of wish I had painted a figure in there so you could see what I mean! There are other awesome balanced rocks here too, not just “the” Balanced Rock. Thanks for reading!

I am Rich Cleveland, artist, musician, bike rider, & former web developer. I enjoy painting landscapes around my hometown of Moab Utah. Occasionally I will paint something from my imagination, using the desert or other landscape as inspiration. I also paint a few portraits and still lifes here and there.
