I’ve mulled painting it for several years now, but could never settle on an idea. This view is part of a much larger outcrop of warped, curved sandstone, and it took a snowstorm and a “eureka” moment to finally enable me to see this vignette apart from the larger scene and realize this is where my interest had always been. There are fascinating patterns and rhythms throughout every part of this view – an uncanny order in the midst of apparent chaos. The vivid color imparted by morning light sets them off in brilliant and dramatic fashion."
