This was from our last student art show. I painted it for my mother in law for Christmas. Got the new digi cam so had to get a shot last night before she takes it to the retirement house out in Arizona.

great job getting those bold colors in watercolor. not easy to do.
Beautiful painting of a sunset. I am particularly impressed by the way you've captured depth in the cactus and surrounding vegetation.

Stunning! Really like that touch of blue in the orange sky. :)

Bethany's right, it's not easy to get bold colours.. and it's not easy to do a sunset justice either - but you have.

Beautiful colors in the sunset, and I like the dark silhouettes of the cacti too.

Yup, what Al said. We are fortunate to see it daily, as MIL will be.
PS: I LOVE St. Lous, outside of NYC, my favorite place that I have lived.

There are a long list of thanks here so I will lump them into one HUGE THANK YOU :D for all your wonder responses to my Arizona sunset. We have been away at the lake this weekend and I have missed seeing all the new threads. Will be up awhile catching up:)
