Artist's description:

Painted en plein aire, on location out in the western deserts. I was thrilled with how the changing light changed the colors of the landscape. Luminous and magical. Vast and quiet.

I also had a close encounter with a coyote while I was working on this painting. He was just curious as to what I was doing. Friendly enough fellow, I thought. You can see by the painting how remote the location was, and it was nice of him to keep me company while I painted.

From a painting trip out west in 1991. I sketched and painted my way across the deserts and canyons, making field studies for an eventual studio series of western paintings. I am offering this piece, one of those field studies, for sale for the first time here on ArtFinder. Others will also be offered as time goes by :-)
