Soooo... I had never heard of Joshua Tree National Park, nor did I have any idea what a Joshua Tree was. My daughter, Sarah visited Southern California and this national park a while back so I asked her about it... her response was "you know mom, it's the Dr. Seuss trees!" And so, forever imprinted in my mind is Thing One and Thing Two roaming around in the California desert, and then The Cat in the Hat popping out (Boo!) from behind one of these cartoonish trees!
With that in mind, I am taking a more comical and colorful approach to this sketch! Seems a little bit more like "paint by numbers" than a work of art, but I had fun... and at the end of the day, that's what it's all about!
