I did a lot of the driving today so only had time to do two sketches.
After leaving those beautiful mountains the scenery consisted of flat, flat and flat with only a distant tree line to break the monotony.
This is my conceptual painting of the feed lots we see in eastern New Mexico and part of Texas. You know they are coming because the smell greets you 5-10 miles before you get there. There are hundreds and hundreds of cattle fenced in where all they can do is eat, poop and mill around. Very sad.
After I drove through Oklahoma City at 5:30pm, DH had to pry my fingers off the steering wheel.
Oh, and these sketches were done on my Arches paper sketchbook...ah, so much nicer.
Tomorrow we will tackle Kansas; Wichata, Topeka and Kansas City. I remember that Kansas City is very poorly signed so that will be fun. Yeah, right!
