Hovenweep National Monument


Hovenweep National Monument
11" x 14"  Oil
This piece is temporarily "on hold" as it is a Mini Winner in "Paint the Parks."  It will be in several exhibitions in 2013.  Will keep you posted!

Hovenweep National Monument is on the border of Colorado and Utah with entrances from both states.  The four-corner area is filled with National Parks and Monuments showing villages and life from times past.  This is from a trip my husband and I took.  I loved the early morning light on the ruins.

Wonderful painting. I think there's a painting around EVERY corner in the Four Corners area. It's just a gorgeous place.

I've never been to this place but your painting makes me want to visit it. The colors are really enticing.

Shirley, Thank you. You're right, every where you look is another potential spot! although, that could be said for many places.

Thank you Celeste. Love those words, grand view. That so aptly does describe it. and, would make a great title.

Sherry, Thanks so much!

Nancy, Thank you. If you get there, go in the morning. One, the light is better and two, the heat!

Pam, I love the Indian ruins of the Southwest. You did a really great job capturing the colors of Hovenweep. Did you do other paintings there? I'd love to see more.

Gorgeous. Love the rich colors, the values and grand view. More than that, I loved spending a week painting and exploring Santa Fe with you. xoxo
