Saguaro at Sunset 30/30 #17

'Saguaro at Sunset"
4" x 5"
Oil on stretched canvas
This is part of the painting challenge to jump-start my painting efforts for 2013.
My theme is centered on my travels this winter in my 1996 29' Winnebago RV. I am having such fun painting some of the main types of cacti I have seen her near Tucson, AZ. Improving and diversifying my painting subjects has been one of the main goals of my travels. My goals for this challenge are to pick up speed in my painting, and be freer in my use of color and brushwork.
This challenge has been offered by artist Leslie Saeta. Link here to join in or see paintings of other artists. I am glad to be participating in this challenge, and seeing the efforts of other artists as well.
Some of my paintings are available. If you see something you are interested in purchasing or would like me to do a commission for you, please email me privately at for details on pricing .
Thanks for viewing!


  1. I'll bet Uncle and Auntie are just eating this series up! I really like them too! Can't wait to see your next one!

  2. How did I miss this? I am so glad that I saw it on my blog roll - this is wonderful, and so evocative of the desert. The only surprise was that I thought this was a much larger painting - what a priceless little gem!


Thanks for your kind comments!
