The Siege of Time

The Siege of Time

40″ x 72″

The south rim of the Grand Canyon offers little creature comfort in February. Winds relentlessly attack the Canyon as they have for thousands of centuries. This painting is about winter and wind at the Grand Canyon. Cold, clean winds form the southwest slice in, blowing out the dirty air, and exposing the Canyon depth to the floor of the gorge below.

Then the sun bursts through a light snowfall to highlight the Temple of Isis and the Cheops Pyramid, creating a special moment, and a beautiful composition.
