Utah artist Bessann Swanson centers us on the Colorado Plateau with her watercolor images that grace the cover of Deep Wild 2022: “Halls Creek Cottonwood,” from Capital Reef National park, and “Canyoneer,” featuring Señor Raven.

About the Artist: A passion for art and creativity led Bessann Swanson to venture into watercolor painting in midlife. Active in the Utah watercolor community, she has exhibited widely in her home state. She has taught courses in travel sketching and takes her sketchbook on every wilderness adventure. www.bessannswansonart.com.

Deep Wild: Writing from the Backcountry is the home for creative work inspired by journeys to places where there are no roads. Our 2022 issue will hit the streets, and the trails, this June. For more info, visit deepwildjournal.com
