Two ravens riding thermals at the Grand Canyon.

There's something a little absurd about depicting the Grand Canyon in a tiny painting, isn't there? I kind of like it.

And the ravens don't even know they're in an iconic setting--just having fun. Loved to watch hawks riding the thermals from Mt. Harris lookout. --Anne Thrower

A small package but what a grand vista.

Thanks, Suzanne!

Having fun--exactly! I watched this pair for quite awhile. They would hang in the air, buffeted by the updrafts, seemingly for the sheer joy of it.

Hi Sherry--thanks so much.

This one is really nice Don. The Grand Canyon in a tiny format is what I like about it. Really like how the dark birds really give you the sense of depth.

Thanks, Frank. When you think about it, what difference is it whether a painting of the Grand Canyon is 6 inches wide or 60 feet? They are still just "souvenirs" compared to experiencing that incredible place.
