Did you know? According to the National Park Service, “Known as honeycomb weathering or “swiss-cheese rock,” tafoni (singular: tafone) are small, rounded, smooth-edged openings in a rock surface, most often found in arid or semi-arid deserts. They can occur in clusters looking much like a sponge and are nearly always on a vertical or inclined face protected from surface runoff.” I’ll be real with you: I didn’t know that’s what I was painting. I was fascinated by the texture and colors. Painting sandstone is maddening, in how many colors and textures there are in one cohesive image and how easy it is to not quite get it right. But it’s also incredibly rewarding to finally see it all come together. Bonus: now I know a new word, and maybe you do too!
