May 25, 2010
Took two babes to lunch today: Carole Glenn and Kathy Radina. Both have birthdays coming up and wanted to treat them royally. Went to Saba's up in Carefree ($65 biz account).

Yesterday I posted a painting study of my memory of the dust storm at Agatha Peak between Monument Valley and Kayenta on the Navajo Res. As we drove through I snapped off a couple shots and here is how the actual peak looked:

Not nearly as dusty as I remembered, and that cloud looks totally fake, like someone with Photoshop trying to fake volcanic ash spewing forth. Here's how the Mittens area looked like in the same duststorm:

I could have sworn the Agatha Peak storm was just as intense. Funny, how our minds play tricks on us. However, I think I like my version of it better than the reality.
