All the Things

NMoil_highwaygrassesGrass, dirt, trees, flowers, mountains, rocks, clouds – this particular vista had all the things that get my inner artist all wiggly and excited. All I might have asked for was that the sun be out to light it all up. But let’s not get too crazy. And actually, a cloudy day meant I could spend more time trying to get those desert plants right, which I needed. Those bluish, broom-like bushes are deceptively hard to paint. And don’t get me started on the yellowish broom-like bushes (I want to you to know I took a good stab at sounding educated and well informed on desert plants, I really did – unfortunately, googling ‘new mexico desert bushes blue broom shaped’ got me nowhere, so you’ll have to do without their proper names.)
