Arizona, A Place of Inspiration

A Place of Inspiration

There is a diversity in Arizona that many people do not realize. 
Besides the Grand Canyon, 
There are snow capped peaks, dry barren deserts,
rolling grasslands, sheltered forests with babbling streams,
and lush bahadas of amazing color and variety.
What ever inspires you as an artist, you can find in Arizona

Thinking of Home in Colorado

Yankee Girl Head Frame

We have been on the road for almost a month and I am just getting out my paints.
As you can see, my mind is still in Colorado, though we have had some great adventures
the past few weeks.  

I have done a light wash on the sky and the background mountain as well as the old mining head frame

Here I have put in some of the trees

Now adding more color and detail to the head frame.
I love the desert southwest this time of year, but it is snowing back home,
and my thoughts stray that direction.  
Hopefully, I will have a chance to finish this painting soon, then start work on 
desert landscapes
