I’m hiking as much as I can while I spend a few weeks of winter in Arizona. Each hike I determine to see at least one wondrous sight. Sometimes I see the rare desert pool of water, sometimes I see a herd of deer, perhaps a lizard or an early blooming of cactus. Most frequently my wondrous sight is the composition of the desert landscape all by itself as its many elements arrange themselves into intricate layers with lines and swirls of light and color. This painting is of a wondrous sight I witnessed while hiking at the end of a day.
