Toward Escalante

"Toward Escalante", 10 x 12 In, Oil on Museum Board
Every spring I go to Southern Utah to paint out in the desert areas. For someone who grew up in the evergreen forests of the Pacific Northwest at sea level, when I cross the mountains to the eastern side I am ever fascinated by the layers of rock and color, and I especially love the area of the Grand Staircase Escalante. These scrubby pines grow at the higher elevations.
