DUSK OVER SPLIT ROCK

I saw this scene in the South Californian desert a number of years ago and I was moved by the soft evening light and the shapes of the round boulders. I have done quite a few paintings of this area - the trip that I took left a deep impression on my psyche and I hope to go back one day perhaps to Death Valley. I started this painting some time ago and it has dragged on for all this time - even now, I'm still not convinced that I'm finished with it. Anyway, I have had enough of it for now and will take another look at it sometime in the future when I can look at the painting with a fresh eye. The watercolor is 15" X 22".

Ah Jeremy, reminds me of the Hoodoos east of Tucson in Arizona. Nice, so far! Hope to see it at Waterfowl.

Thanks so much for the comments as always. Terry, I do hope to have this one at the Waterfowl Festival plus a few new paintings too.
