It’s a large print that I didn’t have time to develop last week when I posted the iPone version on August 7, 2019.  It is now available in three sizes. See below or message me for a quote on custom size and pricing. Thanks for looking. G

Apache Plume, Plaza Blanca

Apache Plume, Plaza Blanca, Georgia O’Keeffe’s “white place”. The apache plume, a native plant, is behaving a lot like an invasive species this year. I hope it takes over the terrain of invasive plants and continues to propagate and populate our landscape. Although there were other, more flamboyant and abundant apache plume bushes, I think this particular plant shows tenacity and hardiness ensconced, as it is, in a rock. Thanks for looking. G
