  1. Absolutely love this! Gives a real feel for the landscape of the Southwest, made more realistic by the birds in the foreground. The cooler colors of the cacti and the base of the monoliths also work well, conveying distance and shadows.

    1. Thank you RocketWoofer1 for the comments...I've done several different versions of this particular design...usually changing the color scheme. One version using a blue sky and some lighter blue in the rock formations giving it a "painted desert" look like in the Great Salt Lake and in another instance, using a monochromatic palette of pinks or oranges. Very nice of you to visit us and comment...hoping to see more from you in the future.
