Arrow to the Sun

As part of being invited by the Monterey Art Museum to participate in the "Over Rainbows and Down Rabbit Holes" exhibit, I made a rough sketch of this image from the McDermott story, "Arrow to the Sun".
I had come in by train from Oakland early in the afternoon of 8-20 and met with the Museum members at the MPC Farmer's Market.
It was a bakingly hot day and the drawing surface was black road asphalt; drawing on the actual road in the lower parking lot area. Asphalt is not an ideal surface to draw on because of it's texture, but for this particular piece it worked well. The native american theme lends itself to a more textured style, emulating stone and earth.
