I loved the visions of Monument Valley in the old western movies that I watched as a child. So when I had the opportunity to visit there I jumped at it. This flat stark red landscape and the Apache who choose to reside here in this spiritual place are fascinating. When we came to view a stone arch, I saw real beauty in this old tree. In her twisted way, she reminded me of a gymnast. So I decided to include her in the scene. She is lovely. 16" x 20" 320 sq. in.
