Distant Rumble — SOLD

This painting is one I did some time ago, but I'm not sure if I ever posted it. The view is of a portion of the Sandia mountain range in Albuquerque during the latter part of the day. It is amazing what a little dramatic light and shadow can do for a subject.

Abundant wildflower blooms make springtime a particularly enjoyable time to make this drive. This 11" x 14" oil is available for purchase at the Big Horn Gallery in Tubac, Arizona.

Near Sycamore Canyon

This 12" x 16" oil painting is of an area just off AZ State HWY 87 between Mesa and Payson, Arizona. This is a favorite drive through the varied terrain of the Sonoran Desert. The play of light and shadow on the eroded hillside is what caught my interest. There are a number of paintable subjects in this immediate area, including the tree-lined Sycamore Creek. The painting is available through Big Horn Gallery in Tubac, Arizona.
