'Dead Horse'

Just got back from camping for 12 days in Moab ..  great place to have outdoor adventures .. so many people everywhere having fun.  Attended the Moab Red Rocks Plein-air Competition .. won two awards here too!

Here is one winner .. painted from the rim at Deadhorse State Park .. we had only an afternoon to paint .. then frame .. then turn it in for judging.  The canyons were very smoke-filled from the fires in California .. but I managed to record some muted colors and just a small slice of the vastness.  Received 2nd place in the Deadhorse Paint-out  .. a great honor as there was some really good artwork in this show.  Want to go back and paint again .. love the area.

Here it is on the judge's wall ..
