Our recent trip to the Southwest was a sensory overload. We visited Sedona, Jerome and the Grand Canyon. I'm bravely posting this 8x8 study of the desert landscape from a photo I shot from the car. The photo is poor but I'm getting some nice color here. The painting is much lighter than it is showing. What I'm going to do is open a book and see how someone else might have handled this subject. I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, which ever way you celebrate.
