Description: An original miniature oil painting of the Delicate Arch formation inside Arches National Park, Utah. Its nighttime setting features the vastness of outer space, which has been used as a backdrop for the arch. (See Artist Comments below.) It does not need to be framed because this artwork is composed on gallery wrap canvas which allows the artist to paint around the edges of the painting.
SOLD: This painting has been sold to a private art collector in Minnesota.
Hi Teresa, I received the painting today. I love it. It’s beautiful. My husband and I have a couple of other paintings by you. We love your work. — N. Schiller, Apple Valley, MN
Delicate Arch is depicted against a night sky in this painting. It is a natural geological formation inside Arches National Park near Moab, Utah. The arch stands 65 feet tall and spans 45 feet wide, and is the park’s largest free-standing arch. It is the most visited of all the 2000 geological formations within the park and receives visitors worldwide. The arch has gone by many names over the years, including “Cowboy’s Chaps,” “Schoolmarms Bloomer’s,” and “Old Maid’s Bloomers,” as well as the more mundane “Salt Wash Arch.” In 1934, the arch was given the name “Delicate.”
Delicate Arch was formed by a gradual wearing away of the sandstone by weathering and erosion. The other arches in the park were formed in the same manner. It is the most famous of all the arches in the national park and has become a symbolic icon for Utah.

Anyone who has visited this national park would probably agree it looks like the terrain of some faraway planet. I had the opportunity to visit this marvelous park in my younger days, and it was a fascinating place that I want to visit again someday.
Thanks for looking!
