Bands of sunset light wash the sky with color, in this painting of Arizona. The desert landscape at dusk is saturated with rich hues and warm light. The brush strokes are loose and expressive, capturing a true impression of the outdoors.

This painting was done on 3/4" stretched canvas, and it has been framed in a classic plein-air frame. It arrives wired and ready to hang.
