Artwork Description: This painting was inspired by my recent trip to Arizona and my love of impressionist paintings. It is not my normal style but I am experimenting and hope to incorporate more impressionism in my more "realistic" paintings going forward. It is a 40 x 30 x .8 stretched canvas. It is fairly large and would look great in a place of prominence. The viewer looks out over the desert vista at Sedona but it could be anywhere in the southwest. The purple in the sky is duplicated in the shadows on the ground and the green color of the shrubs and cacti are consistent throughout the painting.
