This piece evolved out of four studies that I did based on the young Navajo sheepherder in the Monument Valley area. I was interested in conveying an image that would talk to the feeling that the Monument Valley gives. As I imagined what it would be like if one of the girls was standing on the edge of one of the plateaus I was taken by the two worlds that exist there. The Earth and the sky. As my studies evolved further, the clothing that is indicative of the Navajo People became less important. The feeling of the place between Spirit and Earth came through in this simplified form.
