AN ANNIVERSARY

AT THE BLUE MESA

Remember that old saying "Time flies"? It definitely does. 


I was just reminiscing about my travels to the Petrified Forest 
National Park and amazed that it has been one year, since I was 
juried as one of the Park's 2009 Artist-in-Residents.

I lived within a three-room historical adobe at the Park for 
two weeks and painted non-stop from early morning to late 
evening. True bliss!

Above is a pastel on a primed wooden panel, which greatly enhanced 
the texture of rough rocks. And the mountainous scene is one 
of many located along the 3 1/2 mile loop leading from the Park's 
main road to the Blue Mesa Trail.
