Monument Valley, Utah, also known as “Valley of the Rocks,” is considered one of the world’s natural wonders and is perhaps the most enduring and definitive image of the iconic American Old West. This valley has long been a favorite location for filming Western movies. The isolated red mesas, striking spires, and sandstone buttes surrounded by an empty, sandy desert have been filmed and photographed countless times over the years.
Called Tsé Bii’ Ndzisgaii (Valley of the Rocks) by the Navajo, this famous valley lies in the southern part of Utah near the Arizona border within the Navajo Nation Reservation. When you first approach the area, these rock “monuments” will take your breath away. The eerie rock formations make you feel like you’ve been transported to another planet. It is truly one of the most majestic places on earth.
The first time I visited Monument Valley National Park, I knew right away I’d be doing a painting of this beautiful valley. In fact, I’ve painted this place several times. I also have memories of several paintings I did of this place when I was a youngster studying under my dad, a professional oil painting artist. My dad loved painting this location too and painted several oil paintings of it himself. None of those early paintings are around anymore. I’m not sure what became of them—my dads’ paintings sold to art collectors and local businesses in the small community where we lived.
