13.75" x 13.75" framed. "Canyon de Chelly is a fascinating place for a variety of reasons, and for a landscape painter the foremost of these reasons is the light. On my last jeep tour of the canyon I had resolved to keep an eye peeled for what I thought of as 'character moments' – little things that illustrated the way that light works in this place but that were not necessarily centered on the major, well-known landmarks. This is one such moment, and it illustrates the magic of the canyon country perfectly: light moves around out here. It bounces, and plays, and in so doing creates a feeling that everything here, even the rocks and sand, are deeply and vibrantly alive. One is surrounded by light here, even if one is not standing directly in it." - Stephen C. Datz
