Deep in the heart of the Big Bend, Mariscal marks the location where the Rio Grande river switches directions and flows from south to north, giving Big Bend national park its name.
This painting looks into Mariscal canyon as the sunlight shines over the meandering Rio and the moon continues to descend.
Though Boquillas canyon and Santa Elena canyon have very distinguishing features, Mariscal is the tallest canyon in the park. It boasts towering cliffsides and cathedral-like towers that reach to impossible heights. Due to its remote location, it is the least visited canyon, and few have had the opportunity to admire its astonishing beauty.
12 x 16 inches, with a painted 1inch gallery wrap edge. Framed in a hand carved, vintage Mexican frame.
