Painting Saguaro National Park


This painting was done when my nephew Dan Perkins and I went out painting together during his visit at Christmas. We managed to get two paintings done during his visit. Here we were driving to go into the Saguaro National Park and before we got to the entrance we saw this magnificent view and parked the car on the side of the road and began to paint.
