Dawn on Pusch Ridge
Type: Oil on stretched canvas
In this painting, Pusch Ridge towers above the northwest part of Tucson. This was originally a study painted just after dawn, on location from a wash in Catalina State Park. It was cold that day to be out painting, probably January or February. The larger painting done in the studio was from the on-location study and a photograph of Pusch Ridge and a couple of sahuaros.
