A High Desert Painting

"Hills Above Little Rock"
8" X 10" Oil on Canvas
The view here is overlooking the small town of Little Rock up in the high desert not far from Lancaster. Whenever I can get up that way I like to drive through the desert, stop and explore...take in the desert air. The last time I was there I stayed till the sun went down to get some nice reference photos...took my painting gear but it was too windy and cold for that.


  1. Ron, you have captured the dusk light beautifully! How do you manage it on such a small canvas? Lovely work.

  2. Hi Julie,
    Small brushes! hahaha...but actually you do need small brushes and that mind set to work small. I started out on small canvases too so that helped. Thank you for the great comments Julie!!
