Description My wife and I bought and fenced 20 acres of Zuni-Mountain land, to allow it to recover from years of overgrazing. I reveled in the beauty and used the piece as a kind of journal. Back in Albuquerque, I could recall the feel of the place in different seasons and at different times of day.

"These miniatures...evoke a vast, unpolluted openness. This new work...is an invigorating affirmation of life."

"...touched by the reality of earth and its related elements and wholly disclosing Mauldin's unbelievable capacity to tap its essence."
