Sunrise on the Sonoran Desert

Sonoran Desert - March 2011 - B

As snow continues to accumulate in the Colorado Rockies Bob’s latest painting brings us a bright sunrise on the Sonoran Desert of southeastern Arizona. I especially like the back lighting affect he achieved on the majestic saguaros. I wish I could head down that desert path tomorrow morning.

Apples, Apples, Apples III

Apples, Apples, Apples II - B

Sold

Bob’s spent the last month working on a number of very different pieces, depending on his mood and motivation. Several people have  asked when he was going to paint more fruit. Apples, Apples, Apples II is the first to be completed. A few of Bob’s signature squares subtly appear and create depth.

Apple trees in the Denver area produced a hearty crop this year. We’re still enjoying homemade applesauce, fresh apple pies and crunchy apple salads.

Apples, Apples, Apples II measures 8.5×11” and will be matted for an 11×14” frame
