About the Painting

Warm light contrasts with rich shadows in this oil painting of Canyon de Chelly, Arizona. This painting was inspired by the view standing on the very edge of the canyon, looking down onto the winding river and cottonwood trees below. The painting captures the beautiful variety of color and textures you can find in the desert.

This painting was done on 1-1/2" canvas, with the painting continued around the edges. It has been framed in a gilded and hand-carved floater frame.
