    I've always enjoyed painting a scene that shows
what may be just around the corner or in this case
a nice spot up ahead to rest.

     The desert blooming is mostly gone now
but some of the flowering is still around.

          I've slowly gotten used to the idea of round
hay bales. I bet they are a lot easier to move.

         I was last at the Grand Canyon in May of
2016 and just after photographing many spots
on a great sunny morning, the clouds started to
set in. I saw rain and hail for the next two hours.

      Central Park West borders Central Park on 
the West side with many attractions just inside
the walls like Strawberry Fields and just outside
the park, The Natural History Museum.

       This is the Trefoil Bridge in Central Park which 
was made somewhat famous as one of the locations
used in the hilarious comedy, "Out of Towners" 
staring Jack Lemmon. That movie, although very
funny, painted a very unattractive picture of New 
York City.

        The snack stands are all over Central Park
and some are very specialized, but then there are 
some that have too much of a choice.

        Central Park has many underpasses that dot the
park, but the carved stone ones are the most fun to paint.

      This was a great little stream I visited back
in 2005 or so. It was sandy and rocky at the same
time without one trying to outdo the other.

        Sage of many varieties dot the landscape of
the Grand Canyon. It's amazing that they can find
nourishment to grow out of rocks.

   This is a scene I've painted may times. Just East of my home here
in Gilbert is a rustic suburb called Apache Junction. It lies just below
the Western Face of Superstition Mountain.
