Lively color illuminates the canvas in this painting of Canyon de Chelly, Arizona. Early morning sun rays streak down the red rock cliffs and fill the canyon with glowing light. Impressionistic brush strokes capture the transience of the moment.

This painting was created on 1-1/2" canvas, with the painting continued around the edges. The piece arrives framed in a contemporary gold floater frame, ready to hang.
