I love being in the beauty of nature and visiting state and national parks. In June I visited Joshua Tree and the Grand Canyon National Parks which were both breathtaking. I sat at the rim of the canyon and sketched a rough pencil sketch of the canyon. On my return home I colored and painted it and did one of Joshua Tree National Park as well. (see below)
Two years prior I had visited the Grand Tetons. I did this painting in a different style but I still like how it came out.
