Paint Gap Hills in Big Bend National Park

The Painting - From 2003 a quick (and tiny) memory sketch (watercolor - 6"x4") of the Paint Gap Hills in Big Bend National Park. This was the view from our primitive camp site in the floor of the Chihuahuan Desert of West Texas. An awesome place to experience nature with no other humans for miles - and stars beyond description. A place so dark at night that car headlights can be seen 15 miles away.


Tip - explore your memory bank for en plein air paintings of the mind. What is french for "in the open mind?"
