Growing up in the four corners region of New Mexico, I have spent many hours driving the back roads of the expansive Navajo Reservation. The monsoon season is an especially beautiful time to explore the open spaces of the southwest. The expansive skies of that area have found their way into many of my paintings. During an August exploration of the area north of Gallup, I found myself in Tohatchi, the small village of Tohatchi lies on the edge of the Reservation and was originally the meeting place of both the young and the old in the ancient culture. I painted the late summer monsoon as it rolled over the desert and the small dusty road which I was traveling.
