Cottonwoods in the Desert

Driving through the desert, I was amazed to see some trees changing color. These cottonwoods thrive next to streams and creeks, and I found their appearance in an otherwise starker landscape very compelling.

Love these. I keep trying to decide which one I like better. But the minute I think, "Ok, this one," I change my mind. Love them both the same. Wonderful work.

Great Color.
Would love to be able to paint outside more if only the weather would cooperate in Niagara Falls...

Hi Laurel,

I feel like a turn around and you
have another magnificent painting. Soo incredibly beautiful. I don't know if I've ever seen Cottonwoods, but I'd really like to now.

Take care,

Barbara

I just got my first look at these Cottonwoods in Sedona. Just loved the whole scene out there!
