Mid-Monthly Art: North Window

The North Window

This is a water-color painting of the North Window at Arches National Park, which I completed in 2002. The little shadowy people in the window are supposed to represent MOH and I; they are there to add an approximate scale.

Getting the color intensity and balance just right on digital photos of original artwork is somewhat imprecise. This rendition is as close as I could come. Original artwork on a one-quarter sheet of watercolor paper.

Thanks, Cath. I'm going to try to post one a month and see how that goes. I had thought of one a week, but that might be too much!
