I just got back from a 10 day trip to Moab, Utah. It is an incredibly beautiful location and should be on every one's bucket list. It's like Disneyland for the outdoorsman with 2 National Parks (Arches and Canyonlands), hiking, touring, mountain biking, river rafting, 4 wheeling, ATVing, OTVing, so many photo ops; the list goes on and on.
Moab is about 7 hours from Colorado Springs. We took 1 1/2 days to travel each way stopping numerous times.
While there I participated in part of the 2nd annual "Plein Air Moab." It's a week long event where artists can paint within a 50 mile radius and be involved in 3 Quick Draw paint outs. This was my location, and painting, for the first Quick Draw which was held at the Red Cliffs Lodge Winery which sits along the Colorado River.
The event was from 3:00 - 6:00. At 2:45 there was a line to get your canvas stamped. By 6 you had to be back in line with your painting framed. When they said "quick" they were right! When plein air painting you have to capture the light and shadow at a particular moment and not change it. You don't want to chase the light.
Every where that you looked was a painting waiting to happen!
