Winter Warms

Betty Schriver – Apache Junction Sunrise

You often hear about artists painting winter cools, the soft blues and whites capturing the snow and crispness of the cool air. But what if your winters are in Arizona? Unlike the cool colour scenes often depicted in winter scenes, Arizona deserts come to life with flowers that begin to bloom and warm sands around the plants. The cool mountain peaks of Superstition Mountains frame the amazing textures and colour. This painting’s inspiration was from a picture I took during a sunrise in Apache Junction, near Mesa, Arizona. A snippet of Superstition Mountain is in the background. The beautiful shapes of the cactus are always a focal point!
