I have hiked many miles in the deserts of the American southwest around rocks like these. The rock forms that appear stacked or balanced fascinate me.

I built the warm red earth color, scratchy surface, and large presence of the rock with layers of thick paint, glazes, wax crayon, and powdered pigment.

This painting is part of Susan’s solo exhibition “Potential Energy”.
