About the work
Russell Swan painted this work at Indian Wells, which is located in the northeast corner of Arizona in Navajo County. The actual “Indian wells” are a series of springs and shallow wells with colorful names like “Poking Springs” and “Dogwater.” According to local family oral history, Navajos started settling in the area in the late 1880s. In earlier times, the site was home to the Anasazi.
