Here is a collection of paintings from travels outside southern Arizona's Sonoran Desert. Northern Arizona has the canyons and grasslands of the Colorado Plateau. Many people's image of the Southwest come from the painters who settled around Santa Fe and Taos, New Mexico, in the 1920s. That country has a very different landscape and sky, with higher altitudes, fewer cacti, and many puffy cumulus clouds which we lack in the Sonoran Desert. Everywhere is open space and grand vistas!
