Artist’s Statement

Journal Entry: October 13, 2005

I came into the park late in the evening and had only a gas lamp to light the way as I unloaded my pack and set up my tent. Then, I sat down and enjoyed the cool dry night air. The high desert night was dark and the night sky was carpeted by stars and bats. There were thousands of bats navigating the inky dark sky gracefully and silently without disturbing me while I watched them. After I finished my evening tea, I laid out my sleeping bag near a large Basalt boulder and slept under the stars.
In the morning at sunrise, I woke and saw this magnificent Juniper Tree and began painting it before drank my first cup of coffee.
