Western Landscape Art in Tucson, AZ

Maynard Dixon
Ascending Cloud

A trip to the Tucson Art Museum allowed me to see inspiring Western Landscape Art by Maynard Dixon, Thomas Moran, Nicolai Fechin, Albert Bierstadt, Clyde Aspevig, Howard Terpning, among others.

I think I am absorbing sights and sounds and smells and seeing and observing without painting so that all of these experiences can marinate. Maybe I will discover something wonderful when I begin painting again. For now, I am practicing some grace toward myself for not working. Grace is tough.
