I was surprised to find out yesterday that one of my entries had won the People's Choice Award which had been voted on by patrons attending the show.
This may be a bit of humble bragging, but there were dozens of excellent plein air works in the show so winning this award really meant a lot to me. This has been a really good year. God has blessed me beyond my expectations.

Previously I have posted several paintings from slides I made while hiking in the Chisos Mountains many years ago in Big Bend National Park. This latest work is from high above the basin where it's easy to see how this was, at one time, a volcano. The Chisos are the southern-most tip of the Rocky Mountains in the U.S. I believe that the small tree growing out of the rocks is juniper that is common in the higher altitudes of the Rockies, but not so much in the surrounding Chihuahua Desert.
