Wildlife, Bighorn, Western Landscape Painting “Sure Footed” by Colorado Artist Nancee Jean Busse, Painter of the American West
I live on the high desert floor at the foot of the Colorado National Monument. The Monument is 20,500 acres of towering monoliths within a vast plateau with 6 distinctive canyons. It is host to a lot of wildlife including a growing herd of desert bighorns. While exploring the Monument a few years ago, this beauty gracefully climbed to the top of a rocky overlook and gazed down on us as if he knew he was a thing of power, grace and beauty. Such a lovely and unforgettable scene!
