sold through Scottsdale Artists' School

A pear... and, most importantly to me, manzanita berries from the mountains a couple of hours drive away. The berries are a beautiful 'apple' green when fresh. They then dry to a warm golden coral color... a treasured little gift from the Manzanita!

This painting has been accepted into the juried "Fresh Paint" segment of the Beaux Arts Fundraiser to benefit the Scottsdale Artists' School, to be held on November 14th. The proceeds from this painting will be donated to them. The Scottsdale Artists' School is a tremendous resource for artists. I am very grateful to be able to attend one of the finest schools in the country.
