Artist Comments: This painting is a depiction of Delicate Arch against the night sky. Delicate Arch is a 65-foot-tall by 45-foot-wide natural arch located in Arches National Park near Moab, Utah. This particular arch is the largest free-standing arch in the park. It is the most visited of all the 2000 geological formations within the park and receives visitors from all around the world. Through the years, the arch has had more than a few names, from “Cowboy’s Chaps”, “Schoolmarms Bloomer’s”, and “Old Maid’s Bloomers” to the prosaic “Salt Wash Arch”. The current name “Delicate” was given to the arch in 1934. The arch was formed by gradual wearing away of the sandstone by weathering and erosion. The other arches in the park were formed in the same manor. Delicate Arch is the most famous of all the arches in the national park and has become a symbolic icon for the state if Utah.

Anyone who has visited this national park would probably agree it looks like the terrain of some faraway planet. I had the opportunity to visit this marvelous park in my younger days and it was a fascinating place that I definitely want to visit again someday.
