About the Painting

The desert buttes of Arizona are captured here in the vivid colors of the sunset. The brushstrokes are thick and impressionistic, creating a three-dimensional sense of space and movement within the painting.

This painting won "Best in Show" at the Desert Caballeros Western Museum "Cowgirl Up!" exhibition in 2019.

This piece was done on 1-1/2" canvas, with the painting continued around the edges. The painting has been framed in a simple gold floater frame, and it arrives ready to hang.
