Chair Mountain stands as a magnificent guardian over the beautiful Crystal River valley. It rises a few miles up river from the Mechau family home. While this painting unmistakably depicts this very real mountain, the way it and the horses are rendered also places it in the realm of the imagination.  This image is from the mid-section of the full painting — the “chair” for which it is modestly named. – The Mechau Family
