"On The Road Again..."


...in my sketchbook...
but this time back in Arizona
travelling between Wickenburg to Wikieup...
en route to Las Vegas Nevada.
(...flipped here just cuz I haven't done it in a long time! )
Lots of boulders, Joshua trees,
and beautiful, bold iron-red buttes decorated
our asphalt passage northwest!
Whew!
Do I have a lot of catching up to do!

I like how you transformed "summer into winter" with your colors. Being a "winter" person myself, I like how the boulders appear to take the shape of a snowman! Nice work, Margaret!
