"El Malpais, New Mexico" by Lars Michelsen
Oil on panel, 54" x 68"
Including frame made of solid cherry, ("live" edge) reinforced with steel
This picture was hard to come by. Hiking around the New Mexico badlands on a very hot day, with nobody else around. When I got to the top I found one of my water bottles missing. This was a real problem in 100+ degrees with no shade. Sitting there, looking across the lava flows, I wondered what to do. A miracle occurred, in the form of a huge thundercloud. It floated slowly across the plain. When it encountered the ridge I was on it released a down pour on me and the landscape. I drank rainwater form the hollows of rocks, all the way back to the trailhead.
