Capitol Reef National Park, Utah

The slot canyons of the West, sculptured by wind and water over millions of years, are a fantasy world of beauty. Sandstone cliffs, arches and domes rise above rocky creekbeds, often with unexpected ruins and ancient Indian carvings hidden among the incredible cliffs.

This is one of my paintings featured at the Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance website.

I painted this watercolor at Capitol Reef National Park in Utah, fascinated by the canyon opening that beckoned me.  The painting took hours, moving to follow the shade of a friendly juniper tree. inally packing up the art stuff, we hiked into the scene, exploring deeper and deeper into the mystery of the desert landscape.
