People in the Panhandle of Texas call the Palo Duro Canyon the Texas Grand Canyon. I have to ask, "Have you seen the Grand Canyon?" While this is certainly one of the most beautiful places on earth it is only a fraction of the size of the other canyon in Colorado and Arizona. But yes, it is very beautiful! I painted here with Albert Handel and a group of other artists and produced this piece. The colors are very typical of this wonderful state park. I camped out all week in the canyon alone. It was a spiritual week indeed.
