    Titles read: "SUN PAINTINGS".

    Denver, Colorado, United States of America.

    Various shots of artist Pansy Stockton and her assistant gathering vegetation from a rocky, mountainous area of countryside. They make quite an odd pair, she being quite large and wearing a kind of shiny cowgirl outfit and her assistant being a young American-Indian boy.

    Pansy then sits in the countryside and makes a picture of the area, using the articles they have collected - this method is called 'Sun Painting'. Meanwhile, her assistant is climbing down treacherous rocks to fetch grasses and flowers. Pansy shows off the finished picture of a canyon and surrounding scenery - she is now wearing a dress and the picture is in a frame.
