About the Painting

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 will be displayed at The Medicine Man Gallery in Tuscon, AZ, at the exhibition Art of the Saguaro. Please contact the gallery to purchase: (520) 722-7798.
