House on Fire

House on Fire Ruin - Southeast Utah

The Four Corners region of the United States is well known for its wealth of cultural treasures. Ancient people had made use of this area for thousands of years before the common era. Ancestral Puebloans are the best known of these inhabitants largely due to their impressive architectural skills, which can be seen in areas all around the Four Corners region. Probably the most famous example are the spectacular cliff dwellings in Mesa Verde National Park. A remote canyon area of Southeast Utah, far removed from the more famous National Parks like Arches, Canyonlands and Mesa Verde, is littered with these cultural treasures. If you keep a keen eye while hiking along these canyon bottoms you will see many signs of  life from long ago. Cliff dwellings, graneries, pottery and rock art adorn the canyon walls. One of the most intriquing to me, is the ruin often reffered to as "House on Fire" or "Firehouse Ruins." Every morning when there is sunshine, a unique set of circumstances transforms these ruins into an optical illusion that is hard to beieve with your own eyes. An interesting pattern in the sandstone roof above the ruin is responsible for creating the illusion of fire. However, in late morning, when the sunlight is being reflected into the ruins from the surrounding canyon walls, House on Fire takes on a whole new life. The fiery orange rocks come to life, creating  an uncanny resemblance to a raging inferno pouring from the roofs of this spectacular ruin.

Metal Print - Ready to Hang

Metal Print - Ready to Hang

With metal prints the brilliant surface offers a richness of color that makes viewers take notice.  But they also solve the "problem" of framing. Traditional mounting, matting, and framing can be a time consuming and expensive process. Not so with Metal Prints, the metal surface is naturally smooth and rigid, and with a hanger attached to the back, they are ready to hang right out of the box. This is a great choice for a ready to hang contemporary piece of wall art at a more econonimal price.

Canvas Gallery Wrap - Ready to Hang

Canvas Gallery Wrap - Ready to Hang

Canvas Gallery Wraps offer a superb way to display your photographs. What makes canvas wraps so popular is that they eliminate the need (and cost) of framing. Your Canvas Wrap is ready to hang on your wall, right out of the box. Once you see your Canvas Wrap, you'll understand why these are one of the most popular trends in decor and display. Canvas wraps are also a great option if you have a room that received a lot of glare. The canvas won't reflect the light like a traditional glass or acrylic frame will.
