Southwest colors are expressed in vibrant hues of green, blue, and magenta. The setting sun lights up the desert hillside, causing the plants and saguaro to glow brightly against a darkening sky. The brush strokes are loose and impressionistic, alive with texture and motion.

This painting was done on 1-1/2" canvas, with the painting continued around the edges. The painting has been framed in a carved gold floater frame.
