AT THE BLUE MESA
11"h x 14"w pastel on wood panel and gold leaf frame
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.
