On one of our RVing excursions I saw some Petroglyphs. Petroglyphs are images created by removing part of a rock surface by incising, carving or abrading, as a form of rock art. I was inspired to create these paintings from pictures I viewed of First Nations petroglyphs found in North America. These paintings will be on display at Gallery 1710 during the Birds and Byways show in August.
