Above the Desert
"Outside the Walls" is a bold reminder that above a canyon rim there is beautiful color. When I created this image, I was reaching for an emotion, perhaps that beyond darkness as if inside a canyon wall, there is beauty and light. I hope that this painting will speak to you.

You Can Leave Now - Long summers in Arizona, especially those where the annual Monsoons appear to be in hiding, make for the time when we wish for the storms to push the desert heat into a memory.

"Feel the Heat" Whether it is heat from Arizona's blazing summer, the heat of red, or the heat of passion, the feeling creates an emotion.
