San Xavier (A-Vear) is a mission south of Tucson, AZ.  Ansel Adams made it famous in his photos he did mid 20th century. I painted it en Plein Air when I was at the Plein Air conference in April 2016. It has been accepted to the exhibition: “Wish You Were Here”. It is a national juried exhibit of art that focuses on Southwestern Arizona. The show opens July 29 through August 28, 2016.



Plein Air Painting Trip: Blogging with no electricity, Internet connection or cell service.

No cell service!

No cell service!

We were in the Sawtooth National Recreation Area for 4 days and 3 nights. The was no electricity, Internet connection or cell service. So I didn’t do any blogging, checking emails, phone calls or texts. And no art marketing. I was sketching and painting. So don’t feel bad for me. It was great!
