The stately saguaro is always a pleasure to capture in oils. Their naturally abstract shapes create great compositions against a distant desert landscape. The brush strokes in this painting are loose and impressionistic, capturing a transient moment of light and beauty.

This painting was done on 1/8"canvas, and it arrives framed and ready to hang.
