The Greater Roadrunner is an iconic bird of the desert Southwest. I had only seen one once - running along the road, of course! Then I had an unexpected treat when a roadrunner appeared out of nowhere and ran through the campground where I was staying. Luckily, I had my camera in reach and was able to capture a series of images of the bird running between the campsites. For years, I experimented with ways of composing the multiple images to try to portray the rapid motion of the roadrunner. The idea for this painting came to me in a flash one morning as I was waking up.
