This old cottonwood stands as a testament to the harsh conditions of the desert southwest. Often found along washes where they find enough moisture in the water table to survive, occasionally they take root on the bench lands. Rattlesnakes take shelter among the fallen branches, so hikers beware. This one was found while hiking in the Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument.  Digital scan of Fuji Velvia 50 film.

Concentric exfoliation and desert varnish along the Paria River.  The Paria headwaters are along the cliffs of Bryce Canyon. It gains in magnificence as it flows towards the confluence with Buckskin Gulch and then dissipates in a broad cliff lined valley before joining the Colorado River at Lees Ferry. Crossed by a couple of highways and accessible by many dirt roads, it hides its charms well from the less adventurous.

We all know where this is!  This is Arizona, and technically, not in Utah, but oh so close....and I've never seen a border out there anyway.  It's all beautiful country!  Digital scan of Fuji Velvia 50 film.

Darkness, no, blackness drifts over the Maze in Canyonlands National Park after dropping torrential rain over Hite. Storms like this create thunder and lightning that rattles around inside your skull like a pinball and bring winds that will lift a full 5 gallon water container 4 feet in the air off a portable table (I witnessed this and my table ended up 100 yards down a wash)! Both terrifying and exhilarating, these monsoonal cells have to be experienced to be believed. As it should be!  Digital scan of Fuji Velvia 50 film.

Valley of the Gods far down below while my head is in the clouds atop the Moki Dugway in southern Utah.  Valley of the Gods was the first place in Utah where I went off the beaten path years ago and I carry those enchanted memories when I didn't understand this landscape. There is a first time for everything and few experiences live up to the second billing; thank you southern Utah for renewing me every time I venture out.

Darkness looms over Trachyte Creek and the fins to the west of Hite in Glen Canyon National Recreation Area.  The previous day, a storm similar to this one walloped us with hail.  We watched this one closely and realized it was moving off to the north and proceeded on to our day of wandering.  Digital scan of Fuji Velvia 50 film.

A more pulled back view of Owachomo Natural Bridge in Natural Bridges National Monument. Owachomo is the oldest, most delicate and easiest to get to of the three bridges in the monument, although this view requires a little willingness to wander.  Digital scan of Fuji Velvia 50 film.

"Notation CC"
2017
10" x 9"
Oil on paper
Started the "Notation" works on paper in 2005 and here I am at the 200th. The first ones looked like blank musical notation paper only in color.  They have changed over the years and are now started with the application of the leftover oil paint on my mixing table.  Sometimes they sit for weeks untouched and sometimes I paint on them daily. They evolved into two sizes, 10x9 and 14x11.  Just started working towards the 300th.

The first of many; I had no idea that when I embarked on these works on paper that they would hold my attention all these years.  I'm now at 100 (see previous post).

The one hundredth work on paper in this series, a veritable compendium of my studio practice since 1999 when I made the first one.  Looking forward to the next hundred.

Field so green, sky so blue and so much snow in the high country of the Sierra Nevadas. This is a view yesterday of the Sawtooth Ridge above Twin Lakes Bridgeport that forms part of the northern boundary of Yosemite National Park with Matterhorn Peak on the left. Pulled some serious drive time over the last two days taking my wife to South Lake Tahoe for the start of a week long bicycle trip and returning home.  966 miles!  Not a lot of time for pictures but #ipulledoverforthis.  BTW, Mammoth Mountain is expecting to stay open into August for skiing. It looked like the the middle of winter at upper elevations!

Sipapu Bridge in Natural Bridges National Monument.  The word "Sipapu" refers to the small hole in the bottom of a kiva; it is from here that the Hopi believe their ancestors came to populate the earth.  I also like to refer to it as the "spirit hole". It is a place that represents all of creativity.  I often discover passages in my paintings that are spirit holes; I can't make them intentionally and sometimes I paint them out only to have another one appear.  That is one aspect of making art that draws me in.

Went to Nantucket Island to visit my daughter and her fiancé.  The weather changes daily this time of year from "gray lady days" to crisp and bright. Morning reflection at the empty boat docks on one of those crisp and bright days.
