Carousel Mountain, Big Bend, Texas

November 2, 2009

I’ve been trying some new subject matter, and this one is a real departure for me.  My dear friend, Mary Grace Bartoo, provided me with some photos from a trip to Big Bend National Park in far west Texas.  Being a real glutton for punishment, I chose this one to try first.  I figured I may as well push myself a little.  This is Carousel Mountain, in the Chisos Mountains, near the Texas-Mexico border.  It was the unusual shape that grabbed me.  Easy to see how it got its name.

This is 16×20, Gouache on cold press Crescent board
