About the Painting

The buttes skirting the edges of Monument Valley are monoliths of beauty in their own right. Their tall, flat planes of color rise starkly from the flat desert floor, which itself is rainbow of color: green and purple shrubs planted against bright orange sands. This painting captures monsoon clouds on a summer day at the four corners region. The brush strokes are thick and impressionistic, creating a mosaic of color and texture across the canvas.

This painting was done on 1-1/2"-deep canvas, with the painting continued around the edges. Buttes and Sky has been framed in a hand-carved, gold leaf floater frame that was custom-made for this painting.
