VERSO
Signed and titled

The artist once said, “There is a vastness, an immensity, and the peaceful hush of an enormous cathedral about Arizona’s great canyons. Whoever has been within these walls and has seen the flocks of sheep and goats grazing, heard the distant tinkle of the lead goat’s bell, listened to the haunting song of the bright-skirted shepherdess, and who has seen in the distance an approaching rider, a tiny speck against the massive walls, must yearn to perpetuate his impressions of those precious moments. That is why I paint the Navajo.”
