BADLANDS SKETCH

BADLANDS SKETCH
12" x 9" pastel on board
The heat enveloping the nation brings back memories of
my stay at the Petrified Forest National Park of Arizona.

As mentioned in earlier postings, I was awarded

an Artist-in-Residence at the Forest in 2009.

The two-week life experience was exhilarating

and challenging.



My previous post, A PAINTED SUMMERis a view of the 

Petrified Forest National Park's Badlands as I hiked down
onto the desert floor. Above, BADLANDS SKETCH was 
created at the highest point as seen from the Visitors 
Center, Painted Desert Inn.


And below is a picture of me working 

on my Badlands sketch.
