About the Painting

A lone ocotillo stands against a backdrop of fading color, the last light of day illuminating the distant buttes with shades of pink and orange. Long purple and blue shadows stretch across the sandy desert floor, and a beautiful sky in the colors of Arizona covers the heavens above.

"Arizona Sky" was created on linen board, and it arrives framed in a hand-carved and gilded frame.
