"Edward Abbey once remarked “The landscape, like a man or a woman, acquires character through time and endurance.” I’ve always loved this quote, and in fact I have it hanging on my studio wall. This view, looking east from the Notom-Bullfrog Road in Capitol Reef National Park, sums up this sentiment well, I think. From the millenia of deposition that laid down all the geological layers in this butte, to the millenia of erosion that has carved parts of it away to form the dramatic shapes we see now, this seemingly unremarkable desert vista takes on a new aspect when viewed with this idea in mind. So, also, does this painting, at least for me, as it proved to require an abundance of both time and endurance to complete. I guess you could think of it as character building for both artist and artwork."
