The Pinnacles (Badlands National Park)

The Pinnacles
(Badlands National Park series) oil on canvas panel, 7 x 9"

Those that have traveled the Loop Road may recognize this particular scene. It is across from Ancient Hunters Overlook on the right side heading east. On the National Geographic Trails Illustrated Map (topographic map) this section of hills is called The Pinnacles. As you round the bend the scene comes up quickly - a momentary view of sage, prairie grass, and a section of the Pinnacles. For this aggressive daily painting I kept a section of road in for context.
