Moving to Arizona created a new vision for my painting. Gone were the city scenes that I loved to paint. But as I see it, nothing ever stays the same. It is taken awhile to find my voice, but I am struck by the color in the Southwest, especially the sunsets. My new painting is all about the sunset. This painting is a combination of photographs. A friend showed me a great photo of a sunset he took where we live. We can see Camelback mountain from our balcony, so I combined that with his photo. I could see the lights on the mountain after dark(there are homes there). I will paint more sunsets so I can capture the color of our new home.
