Sonoran Spring, 9x12 oil on linen panel by Stevie Denny

People often think of the desert as bland and colorless, but the Sonoran Desert is full of beauty.  It is a carpet of color during the spring, when the wildflowers bloom in abundance.  I painted this scene from a photo I took in the Bartlett Lake area during the wildflower season.  The slightly higher elevation produces more foliage and blooms; and the saguaros seem to like it better, too.
