Blue Infinity Skyline Arch

The window is an often-used symbol in art, with symbolic and expressive qualities that for centuries have inspired some of the world’s greatest artists. Through art, the window can provide physical and spiritual illumination.

Skyline Arch, one of over 2000 natural sandstone arches in Arches National Park in Utah, provides a window to sky, clouds and the infinite universe beyond. I did three loops through the park searching for the right example to illustrate this metaphor. After reviewing its many geological wonders, I selected this one for a field study, which led to this final oil painting.
