Snow Squall 6x8 Oil (White House Ruins Overlook, Canyon de Chelly National Monument)

Painted on-location at Canyon de Chelly, Arizona, at the White House Ruins Overlook.  Snow squalls were blowing through that afternoon, so I retreated to the inside of the RV so I could paint the view out the window.  Still spectacular! Canyon de Chelly National Monument is a real gem in the northeast corner of Arizona, and it’s beautiful anytime of year.
