- Medium: Oil
- Size: 8'' x 8''
14" x 14" framed. "The visual evidence of time’s passage is abundant in the Grand Valley of western Colorado. Indeed, I would argue that this is both a defining characteristic and the main source of the visual splendor and charm of the desert southwest. This view, just outside the west entrance to Colorado National Monument, shows this evidence through several aspects: the unique erosional geometry of the Bookcliffs, seen in the background; sandstone blocks that continue to be relentlessly reshaped by the ravages of freeze and thaw cycles; and the humble juniper tree, whose shape reflects the difficult realities of growth and survival in this harsh environment. The low, western light of another day now passed is the perfect complement to this tableau of time."
