    This impressionistic painting of Saguaro Cactus in the Sonora Desert at sunset. Was inspired by the beautiful sunsets of Southern Arizona. The sky can turn a powerful deep orange red that is spectacular to see. This painting captures a small part of the beauty of the western skies of Arizona. 

    "Desert Saguaro Cactus Sunset" is part of my western impressionistic plein air painting series. I enjoy the vast variety of the Western landscape. I use bold colors and powerful brush strokes, in my landscape paintings, to deepen the emotional impact of the artwork. Art collectors(and art lovers) will see my artwork is heavily influenced by Maynard Dixon and Guy Rose as well as many of the early California impressionist painters. 

    Painting is original and one of a kind. Painting is sold unframed. Free shipping (the lower 48 United States only). I accept returns but buyer pays return shipping and item must be returned completely intact and undamaged.
