Oil on canvas 30 × 44 inches.
This painting is derived from several photos and sketches and finished over several years in the studio. The Tucson mountains lie on the western edge of the city of Tucson, Arizona. This orientation makes for a stunning horizon line when viewing the many spectacular sunsets that Arizona offers. I love this view from inside the Tanque Verde Creek bed. The houses and other urbane elements are obscured by the tree lined bank, and when there is water it shimmers with the waning sunlight.
