|Storm's Coming, 6"x6", oil on canvas panel|
You know you're an Arizona native when a rainy day puts you in a good mood.
— Marshall Trimble
I realized that I'm getting comfortable with the flower paintings, so decided to take a different direction.
I took the reference photo for this painting somewhere on Interstate 10, between Phoenix and Quartzite, Arizona, last summer. It had been a very hot trip (118 degrees F on the way to Phoenix), and we were enjoying the storm clouds coming over the desert on our return home. The Arizona desert is beautiful, especially when there is "weather." (And
yes, I am an Arizona native.)
