"Quiet Sentinels"
Oil on Linen
11 X 14"

This piece is from a plein air study that I did on the South Rim of the Grand Canyon last June.  I went to the Grand Canyon for a few days of camping and painting.  This is late afternoon light, near Maricopa Point.

Sonoran Desert Painting

"Desert Companions"
Oil on Linen
12" X 9"

This piece started as a study that I painted at the Lost Dog Wash in Scottsdale.  I finished the final painting as a Demo while I was at TheStore, the art gallery at Mesa Art Center.

I love the early morning light.  The day started out hot and by 9:00 am it was too hot to continue to paint outside.
