Phoenix Mountain Preserve

Paul’s Point of View

Painted at high noon.

The view looks East at the mountain preserve West of the 51.

Somewhere between Stoney Mountain Park and the Dreamy Draw Recreation Area.

Let’s call it mid-slope.

Another Palm Tree

Another Palm Tree

Quick watercolor sketch of palm tree during summer sunset in Sunnyslope.

Things to be heard while painting include church bells, kids on bikes and the muffled announcer of a game at the high school.

There is a lot of foot traffic in my area, and I would think it’s more walk-able than other parts of the metropolis. I imagine we all are enjoying the sunset together.

Then I think about the people on the freeways, stuck in traffic trying to get to the suburbs. I hope they take time to be outside and look at the sky when they get home.
