Big Bend finale

Desert Ocotillo, 6 x 8
.
This is my last Big Bend painting. I painted this typical desert scene along the Maverick Road, a "drive at your own risk" washboard with very few takers on this particular day. The light kept changing and everything looked completely different 30 minutes later. That's the fun - seeing all the different faces and colors of a place. It was a great trip...

I am sure this was just another spot on the road, but you managed to turn it into an interesting and beautiful painting. Congratulations!

This is lovely, I especially like how you left all those brush strokes to feast our eyes one!
