Sunset Granite

Sunset Granite
30x24 inches oil on canvas

There is a ladder attached to the side of huge granite boulder that you climb to get to this spot. I didn't carry Ziggy (my little Rat Terrier dog) up the ladder but she managed to run around it until she found a way up. We had a great time taking photos up there and just sitting and looking out at the amazing granite boulder hills all around. The light just before sunset is amazing.

Side Of The Road - SOLD

Side of the Road
16 x 20 inches oil on canvas

For me this is just happiness on canvas.

Hwy 89 To Yarnell, AZ

Hwy 89 To Yarnell, AZ
24 x 30 inches oil on canvas
I've been painting, just not producing finished paintings, but, this one I am calling finished.

I had a vision of a version of this painting back in October 2011. After arriving in Yarnell, and seeing this great bush called "Desert Broom," it called out, "Paint me!" I just love seeing these bushes on the side of the road. People from around here call them weeds, but to me, it's one of the beauties of winter.
