A friend and I went to Tucson for a painting retreat. It was marvelous... The rains would come, we'd struggle to find our way through the closed roads... just a fantastic adventure. Coming down from the mountain, we came upon a wash that had become passable on foot. This was my last painting on the trip, as we were leaving the next day.. A few stretches in yoga, relaxed my tired muscles... and the title popped into my mind "Salutation to the Sun".... It was a glorious sunset. when I attempted to finish the painting in my studio, .I had such trouble with the water reflections. Solution: I eliminated much of the water in the painting, as I had no picture to work from.. it became a mostly dry wash. : ))

What a gorgeous desert oil Maria!
Sure would enjoy being there right now Maria! Would readily beat the snow coming in. While typing this I'm looking above at several of your Poo images. I think they'd enjoy running around the desert too. Probably grab a handful of grapes from your other image I see. Yep!, Can see them eating grapes and hiding behind the those cactus and other plants. Nice colorful path to follow. Wonder just how much trouble they could stir up. /L/F
Returning to admire this amazing and gorgeous work of art... So magnificently done, Maria! A masterpiece of desert beauty! F/L

Revisiting this gorgeous work of art... Truly magnificent colors, details and composition, with the stately saguaro cacti standing watch like sentinels in the majestic Arizona desert landscape. So beautifully done, Maria! A joy to view! F/L
