About the Painting

Crystalline color glitters through this grove of cottonwood trees in Canyon de Chelly, Arizona. The abstract shapes of the criss-crossing leaves and branches create brilliant pattersn of light and color on the canvas.

This small oil painting was created on canvas-wrapped board. It has been framed in a traditional plein air frame, and it arrives ready to hang.
