We were Artists in Residence at the Petrified Forest National Park in Arizona for two weeks in September and October 2011.  This Park, which also includes the spectacular Painted Desert, is a land of extremes and otherworldly beauty.  These images capture our expericence of both the intimate and grand scale of nature.
