Palo Duro Canyon State Park, June 2, 2009. Texas Panhandle.
Not being terribly satisfied with the two vistas I'd painted of the canyon, I turned my attention to the wildflowers which had been drawing me since my arrival. They are everywhere; blanket flower, prickly pears, coreopsis, aster flowered daisies, horsemint and many, many others. The west Texas drought was relieved about a month ago and it rained all 3 days I was there, so I got to see fabulous lightning, thunderhead clouds and gushing "rivers". All this is making for fine wildflower displays. Aren't I lucky?

Every time I visit your work, i become so envious, you are so talented! Kudos!
Going to try and make your show! I’ll keep rooting you on! Summer has been a burden with all the kids, and work, still trying to figure things out! Sending blessings your way, Caroline

Wow, I just found this blog for some reason. I have checked your pastel blog fairly often. We have visited 49 of the 50 states, but I wasn't painting all the time. Shucks! Great project, I will be watching. :) Great paintings, too.
