Size: 6″ w x 6″ h
Support: Gallery Wrap Stretched Canvas
Description: A small landscape painting of Devils Tower National Monument, an iconic landmark in Wyoming. The Tower is set against a clear blue sky with green trees in the foreground. The painting is signed by artist Teresa Bernard.
This painting’s small size makes it perfect for small rooms or areas where space is limited. It measures 6×6 inches and is hand-painted on gallery wrap stretched canvas. It won’t need a frame because the painting’s composition spreads out around the edges of the canvas giving it a fashionable look. Framed or unframed, this painting of Devils Tower will look great in your home or office, or any place it is put on view.
I painted the Devils Tower as an oil painting after returning home from a trip with my husband to South Dakota in 2016. During this trip, we visited Devils Tower National Monument. The monument is a unique geological rock tower that rises above the grassy plains of northeast Wyoming. At the time, we were vacationing in Rapid City, South Dakota. Since the tower was within driving distance of our hotel, we could not pass up the opportunity to visit this “one-of-a-kind natural wonder.”
We could see Devils Tower from miles away as we made our approach to the national monument. Upon arriving at our destination, we drove through the 2.1 square mile park which surrounded the monument. We couldn’t help but notice the tower as it was the centerpiece of the park. It looked like a giant granite tree stump with a flat summit and fluted sides.
Devils Tower stands more than 867 feet from its base to the summit. It measures approximately 180 feet by 300 feet at the top and is about a mile in circumference at the base. There is a 1.25-mile hiking trail around the tower base that provided us with spectacular close-up views from all sides. There was another much wider 3-mile trail that also loops around the tower, but we didn’t take that one. We spent a better part of the day exploring and learning everything about the tower before heading back to the hotel. All-in-all it was a wonderful experience that I would recommend to anyone.
Why “Devils Tower” and Not “Devil’s Tower”?
In 1906, President Teddy Roosevelt declared Devils Tower America’s first official national monument. The monument was initially named “Devil’s Tower” with an apostrophe; however, somewhere along the way, the apostrophe got dropped because of a clerical error and was never corrected. To this day, it is still called Devils Tower with no apostrophe.
