“Eye Candy” is how I view this lovely place called Arizona and that is what I wish to convey in my art. How can a person not look everywhere and see beauty. It is the light that covers the Valley with magic. The setting sun painting the McDowell Mountains with a pastel palette of the softest pinks, blues and lavenders. It is the light that makes a cactus flower’s pedal look almost transparent. It is the delicate, lacy light dancing on the ground filtered through a mesquite tree. The bold light hitting the rocks in an outcropping on the mountains giving them their strength and power. The wonderful light is the story I want my artwork to tell.
