Painting in the Southwest United States

In the winters of 2006, 2007 and 2008 I stayed with artist friends in Oracle, Arizona (an hour north of Tucson). An old "stagecoach trail" leads into the desert just five minutes walking distance from the front door of my studio apartment. 

My favorite trails are in Oracle State Park, just a five minute drive away. Every morning I hike into the desert, many times carrying my easel and paints. Here are some of the paintings of Arizona (and Sonora, Mexico) that I have done during my art trips to Oracle. I plan to return often to Oracle in the future and will post more of my Southwest paintings.
