Artist's Description

The Painted Desert is a United States desert of badlands in the Four Corners area running from near the east end of Grand Canyon National Park and southeast into Petrified Forest National Park. The name, Painted Desert, was first used in 1858 by a government explorer, Lieutenant Joseph C. Ives, to describe the area’s brilliantly colored shales, marls, and sandstones, which are banded with vivid red, yellow, blue, white, and lavender. At times the air glows with a pink mist or purple haze of desert dust.
