CURVES Challenge entry, Roberta Mallard

Room With a View-Gila Cliff Dwellings
20×24, oil on canvas

These cliff dwellings built into the rock outcroppings of the Gila Wilderness in New Mexico were the homes of the Mongollon People around 1280 AD.

The painting is from a photo I took when I visited the Gila River and the surrounding wilderness. I am still amazed at the dwellings built into the natural curves of the sandstone caves. The view of the lush forest from the opening is breathtaking.
