12″x9″ pastel on sanded board
It was a beautiful morning painting Plein air. I offered this painting to the prior, and he was delighted to put it in the gift shop. It sold before I left the monastery.
These don’t grow where I am in New Mexico, but I was missing some friends from the Sonoran desert, and I was really hot, so I painted this.

I painted this as a complimentary color study: red orange/ blue green.
