Desert Paintings

I painted these desert scenes looking at the Catalinas in Tucson. I loved the way the light raked across the mountains creating the interesting shadows and color. The view is of Finger Rock from the Swan and River Road area. Both paintings were done from nearly the same spot but months apart. In one of the landscapes there was an iron cross set up on one of the paths.
