The “Q” stands for quarantine, a word that we all hear far too often these strange days. Feeling a bit stagnant and honestly a bit sad this morning I decided to just draw, to get out of this temporary funk I’m feeling. I’m happy to report I’m feeling much better as I worked to find […]

The Delicate Arch

The Delicate Arch has become the unofficial symbol of Utah, it’s that beautiful orange-red rock formation on their license plate. I didn’t really know what to expect, and honestly I expected to be underwhelmed by another touristy landmark. Boy was I wrong. First, the 1.5 mile hike was intense, climbing nearly 500 feet.
