I like the handling of the gleaming water and the gold color cast on the side of the memorial ornament. Also find those Moab formations fascinating and appreciate your solid handling of them.

This is off topic for this particular painting, but now that you live in Arizona, have you ever been to the waterfalls at Havasupai Indian reservation in Arizona? I watched a You Tube video of them today and they look absolutely spectacular! A painting paradise for you for sure.

Hi Mick,

I wrote an earlier comment here, but I think I neglected to press 'submit!' I was saying that
I liked how you handled the reflections in the water, and also the gold on the memorial pedestal. On the last one, I find those Moab shapes very intriguing in general, and like your solid handling of them.

Now that you are in Arizona, have you ever visited the waterfalls at the Havasupai Indian reservation? I saw a YouTube video of the three gorgeous falls there and they might make great painting material for you to enjoy.

Hi Mona,
I'm sorry, but it may have been my fault for your earlier comment to not be published. Blogger had suspended my publishing while they determined that I wasn't a spammer. I was cleared finally.

I'm back now and can answer some questions. Actually I feel like I'm running out of time before the hot weather gets here before I can get out to some of these locations in AZ. I can't wait to add new locations to my apting loctoosn. I did add some shots of the Yuma and Gila Bend arewa this weekend.

Thanks for the kind comments.
