"Side Canyon Shadows"
7" x 5"
Original Watercolor
I painted this little watercolor last week while parked at the side of the road - the scenic drive in Red Rock Canyon. It is the view into Pine Creek Canyon in mid-morning light. The growing shadows on the Spring Mountain Range are a muted purple around 11 a.m. It was a beautiful day and unseasonably warm.


  1. This is beautiful! My kind of landscape.

  2. Thanks Brent! At first I was little intimidated painting the desert. All those yuccas and joshua trees and creosote. But I have developed my ways of depicting this flora and now it is a pleasure.


Feel free to comment. I'd love to hear from you!
