This work won the “Best Reproduction of a Master’s Work” and “Peoples Choice” awards at the Denver Chalk Art Festival 2017.  I used a little Lightroom trickery to correct the photo’s perspective.

This scene, BTW, is just a taste of the attractions in Zion. The place can get a bit crowded during the summer, but a shuttle bus service runs up and down the canyon, and many impressive sights are just a short hike away from a shuttle stop.
