On the road back to Lander after a tour of the Carissa Mine, we rounded a corner and came upon this awe inspiring vista. Red Canyon's rust colored sandstone combined with surrounding hills of green and yellow ocher presented a stunning visual image. Standing there in the Wyoming wind, I tried to drink in the scene, to remember the colors and the slant of the light. Several photos later and a bit chilly, I jumped in the car and off we went. Later in my studio, I rummaged through my collection of thrift store textiles looking for just the right colors, textures and patterns to create this piece. Strip by strip, the Red Canyon's light, colors and wind whipped clouds emerged. I was there again.
