13.75" x 13.75" framed. "The dramatic escarpment of Colorado National Monument’s cliffs is always interesting in and of itself but it can also provide a very dramatic foreground for exciting things happening in the sky. This view, from an area near the lower terminus of the Liberty Cap Trail, is one of my favorites, and has appeared in other paintings. This particular moment proves that sometimes it pays to wait and see what happens. Sunsets like this are uncommon in the winter, and had I yielded to the temptation to head home I would have missed it completely. Even a sun long vanished beneath the horizon can still light up the land in unexpected and amazing ways." - Stephen C. Datz
