Lot Essay

The artist describes the present work, "Moonrise was the result of one of those drives on the eastern edge of [Pickens' Mesa Vista Ranch] looking out toward the Mesas that make up the main geological characteristics of the landscape. This mesa country along the Canadian River was essential to the survival of the Native American tribes that inhabited the region. Mr. Pickens was very much aware of the history of the land."
