Monument Valley Sunrise


Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park, known by the Navajo as Tse’Bii’Ndzisgaii

Straddling the Arizona-Utah state line, natural forces of wind and water that eroded the land spent the last 50 million years cutting into and peeling away at the surface of the plateau. The simple wearing down of altering layers of soft and hard rock slowly revealed the natural wonders of Monument Valley today. The valley’s vivid red color comes from iron oxide exposed in the weathered siltstone. The buttes are clearly stratified, with three principal layers.

A word about frames:
I have chosen the frame for each piece carefully with the goal of choosing a frame that complements the whole piece.

The measurements are made by the actual size of the piece when it is settled into the frame. Hence, some frames range from 1” to 2.5” wide, depending on the frame, the footprint is wider than the measurement.

There are no cheap black or metal frames in my studio or anywhere else connected with my prints.

My unique frames come from Franken Frames in Tennessee. I have been a satisfied customer for many years. The artwork is expertly settled into the frames locally at Creative Framing here in Taos, Jim Cox and his staff have done excellent and timely work.

If you are considering a piece, and have questions about the piece or frame, email me at: with the title of the piece and I will send you a picture of it in its frame and answer any questions that you might have.

All pieces are shipped free within the United States.
