It's difficult to explain why arid places appeal to me so much. Maybe it's because there aren't extraneous things to distract from the view like houses, vegetation, and people. The land has a harsh beauty to it found in the rocks and ground shaped only by wind, water, and time. The sky goes on for eternity.

This is the Sierra Diablo. It's a wildlife management area named for the mountain range in which it's located. It is held in preservation for the last of the desert longhorn sheep living in Texas.

This piece is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished edges. It comes ready to hang.
