This is Blue Mountain, in South Eastern Utah. On maps you can find it labeled as "Abajo Mountain", but the locals all call it Blue Mountain. My husband grew up right at the base of it. When I did this piece he said "It's way too green--it's the desert." I personally think there is plenty of desert color in this picture, but I called it Blue Mountain in green anyway.

Last fall I volunteered at a 5k race fundraiser for our school's gifted and talented program. It was an out and back race with me at the end to tell people to turn around. The people didn't actually need my help. So, I took my sketchpad and did some drawings--and turned this one into an embroidery.
