I love the warmer months because it means more painting outside! These last couple weeks have seen beautiful days in the desert and the mountains and I've been painting a lot. This capture of the central Utah desert was taken while on a last minute girl's camping trip. I probably *should* have been home working, but the appeal of desert camping was too much for me to ignore. If you're curious what tools and materials I use to make my paintings outdoors, head on over to this post to see what I carry in my travel kit.
