This painting entitled, "Grand Canyon Distance", was one of the paintings I parted with last weekend at Art in Kayenta. I met a lot of great people, saw some beautiful artwork, and had a great time.
This was the first time I've ever been to Kayenta, and I'm very appreciative of what they are doing over there in promoting natural landscaping, and architecture that harmonizes with the landscape. When I drove into Kayenta at the break of Dawn on Saturday, I was amazed that of all the many homes in Kayenta, not one had a visible porch light. No street lights, window lights, flashing lights, billboards, etc. I couldn't even see the houses. Even when driving directly through the community, I noticed that I was only able to see the house that I was directly looking at, all the rest in my peripheral vision blended into the surrounding landscape. We need more of these dignified desert developments that use little water, and respect the native plant life, and surrounding landscape.
