Welcome Elizabeth J. Buckley to the Daily Dose! When the Ocean and Desert Were One is one of the pieces featured in Tapestry Through Time, hanging at The Historic Taos Inn until February 1, 2016.

As a child, I was first introduced to the concept of geologic time by my father when we would go fossil-hunting in the Flint Hills of Kansas. In the shale and limestone, I found forms of invertebrate life from when the prairie was once an ocean bottom so many millions of years ago. The same is also true for the desert. – Elizabeth

Elizabeth has a wonderful website, with a portfolio full of her tapestries…. and she also teaches classes!

Please feel free to leave a comment about this piece! We would love to know what you think!
