This is an 18 X 24 inch oil painting of part of the mesa to the north of my house. It is called Petroglyph National Monument. I was imagining what it would look like if we got lots of rain. With all the construction and people living closer to the monument, there are lots of flowers being planted in home landscape. The seeds should be spreading all over by wind and birds. I wonder how the vegetation might change if we got more rain. Last year we had a crop of wild sunflowers at the Petroglyphs and it was beautiful! This painting is called “High Desert, If it Rained on the Mesa”.
You can see the video of the Petroglyph sunflowers here: Sunflower fields pop up at Petroglyphs.
