Here's a small painting from sketches I made at Monument Valley.
We headquartered at Mexican Hat, Utah. Damn, it was soooo hot. I hoped to paint on location, or at least at the motel but it was too hot.
Monument Valley was incredible, but fairly crowded with tourists.
Later, we drove through Valley of the Gods...just east of Mexican Hat. Virtually no one was there with the exception of a few "boondockers" who waved in a friendly way, but I could tell they hoped I would just move along.
