Singing Praises of Southwest Canyon Lands

We took a trip in mid-March to the National Parks of U.S. Southwest.  Our first stop was Needles District of Canyonlands in Utah.  Wondrous sights were impressed upon my soul forever there. Grand, giant, awe-inspiring wild rock dessert glory.  One is humbled by this landscape.

When we were back home I had to put colors swimming in my head on the loom. 
I'm sharing some of the grandeur in these photos and results from the loom.
A painter paints these scenes, a fiber artist has to weave them.

Happy travels where ever you are going.

I love those weavings! What a good way to hold onto and remember that place. I could talk about how great the colors in the desert are all day.
