Title

Across from grand view point, Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona.

Subject

Description

There are different colors present in this portrait. The most stark being grayish black, brown and clay red and orange. We are awarded a most surreal, serene and spectacular vista. Mesas and flat top mountains reign from the foreground to the background, fading into highlights as they ascend into the distance. A zig zagging snaking pathway can be seen in the distance, towards the center of the landscape. It could simply be a path or a running river. In the distance the clouds look cosmic, intangible, even fake. The skyline is similar to an old wild west background one would expect to see on a stage for a play.
