Special Merit Award

This painting, Ocotillo Trail, received a Special Merit Award from among 738 artists representing 28 countries. It will featured in the 6th annual 'Landscapes Art Exhibition' of the Light Space and Time online gallery through April.

This was a fun spot to paint in the Saguaro National Park, Tucson, Arizona. A professional photographer was hiking for photos and snapped a photo - he'll turn it into Arizona Highways for a possible future issue.
