A roar of color and form…
Color & form
Dan Flores also wrote about the Texas Canyonlands area and “its highly hued beauty,” in his August 2007 Texas Monthly article titled “Land that I Love.” Flores describes the Texas Canyonlands as “a roar of color and form, a profusion of Canyonlands” where “the ground suddenly falls away in a series of trap doors to reveal hidden worlds, plunging as deep as one thousand feet below the flat, dull plain…”
In the foreword to Flores' and artist Amy Winton's enchanting book, Canyon Visions: Photographs and Pastels of the Texas Plains, Larry McMurtry wrote that the Texas Canyonlands possess “the power… to arouse in us a sense of the long, long movements of time—a sense, if you will, of the eternal.”
