The Western American high desert country is a landscape of breathtaking geological contrasts. This evaporated ancient sea of minerals formed into twisted slot canyons, towering steeples of Hoodoo red rock and fragile Arches. The light, the textures, the colors of this surreal geological wonderland appearing and disappearing in this vast glassy mirage basin between horizons. A landscape of water and wind erosion. This collection of paintings explores the historical and sudden geological changing nature of desert landscapes from the Utah Arches and Canyons to the Santa Fe enchanted Mesas.
