Latest work: "Highway 6"

I've traveled in California's eastern Sierra a lot, have led numerous photo workshops there, and never grow tired of the place. There's a stretch of road north of Bishop that leads you through arid land with green stripes and circles of irrigation here and there. The White Mountains loom on one side, flat volcanic table lands stretch out on the other. This piece contains the colors you often see: muted greens and rich terra-cotta. I painted a variety of papers, photographed them, and used them here as well as photographs of the striped pattern on the side of a fishing boat. ©Carol Leigh
