Superstition Mountain
16" x 20", oil
The painting found a home this summer before I had finished it!  This image is of Superstition Mountain, which is part of the mountain range commonly referred to as the Superstitions located in Arizona east of Phoenix. My goal was to capture a mood that conveyed the mystery associated with the legends and lore of the mountain range.

On Edge
16" x 20", oil

Arches National Park was inspiration for this landscape.  I enjoyed playing with the color in this painting and capturing the path of light.  The sunlight strikes the arch from behind (creating a halo along its edges) and falls on the rocks below.  The diagonal thrust of the arch and land creates a dynamic composition.
