    Artist Statement

    Carrizo Plain National Monument, San Luis Obispo County, California, USA

    "During a short time each spring, usually in March, the hills of the Carrizo Plain are painted as if by the strokes of an artist’s brush with a soft, pastel palette. On my visit I was greeted by weather perfect for photographing the stunning vista of yellow coreopsis, orange San Joaquin blazing star, and purple phacelia flowers in full bloom."
