Nevada Vista One

17x23 mixed media on paper. I had so much fun doing this piece. Stay tuned I have more or these! I have always enjoyed doing landscapes that come out of my head, based on what I have seen on the road in Nevada and other places in the West!  My Mom and Dad took us all over when we were kids - Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Utah, Arizona, Nevada, California, British Columbia, Alberta and more! Magnificent scenery and wide open spaces!

Interesting mix of rock, soil, and vegetation in this one. I almost missed the yellow flowers at first look.
Someone needs this on their wall.

Hi DJ,
Thanks for your comment. I really have fun doing these landscapes. I don't know why I like line so much, but I do. Can't help myself!
