I visited the state of Arizona more than 20 years ago. I took a safari trip to its deserts and was immensely impressed by those giant cactuses everywhere.

Those cactuses were standing up with so much pride, some for a hundred years or more, I couldn't resist creating this image of what I saw through my eyes. I saw multi-colored soil reflecting the sunlight. The solid colors are overlapping transparent colors creating wonderful hues. The shapes of the ground reflect an uneven surface and tiny hills. There is a variety of texture underneath of the colors giving a special 'depth' to the painting. This is a one of a kind artwork.

Reproductions on canvas and artist's paper are available starting at 75 Euros. Contact the artist.
