  • I've read about the Canyon de Chelly in various history books but was never able to envisage it - would those flowering shrubs be a form of balsam?

  • Beautifully painted, with super composition that leads the eye of the viewer into the painting.

  • Thank you very much Margaret!

    Thank you Seok Yam Chew I appreciate your comments very much.

    Hello Robert, those trees are cottonwoods and while they look like shrubs from the rim of the canyon, they are forty to sixty feet or more tall and usually follow the course of the river. At this time of the year it is very dry but when the winter rains come the river will be flowing again and will spread out through all the low area at high water.

  • An excellent painting, and lovely warm colours. I bet it gets a bit hot down there, though!

  • Hello Barrie, thank you for your comments. Yes, in summer it gets quite hot there. Actually cooler in the canyon than on the rim. The walls of those canyons are approximately 900-1,000 feet. Fortunately it is a dry heat because it is considered high desert.
