Bulldog Rocks Study, 6x6 oil on Raymar cotton panel

Recently my husband went with me for a plein air painting session (he's not a painter, but he's a great photographer and critic!). I wanted to go back to Bulldog Rocks, along the Salt River in the Tonto National Forest, north of Mesa.  I paint there often.  Since the best viewing spot is closed for the winter (Water Users)  the next best place that's free is a turnout on Bush Highway just south of Water Users.  It requires a little hike to get down to the water, but there are great hiking trails and the view is well worth it.
