The stately saguaros of Arizona are a joy to paint. Their unique shapes capture the vibrant color of the setting desert sun, the warm light a striking contrast against the cool blue shadows. The thick, impressionistic brush strokes add another dimension of depth and motion to the painting.

This painting was created on 1-1/2" deep canvas, with the painting continued around the sides of the canvas for a finished look. Framing is available upon request.
