Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum

[Long description: The view from the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum and Saguaro National Park, looking north. The sky is huge and heavy with a stormfront, glowing like fire in the evening sun as a few saguaros scrape the clouds.]

! She's here!

I was very kindly approached by TWWM staff to do banner artwork for Majanthi's greenhouse, back in June, which was a.) extremely my bullshit and b.) very humbling ;_; It was also the perfect excuse to paint some places I've wanted to for a long time.

This is one of them, the view north from the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum. I had the chance to visit it in the fall semester last year, and was really taken in by it, both as an institution and by its location. I remember looking north and seeing streaks of light in the open desert below the museum, not all sure if they were mirages or just large bodies of water deposited by the rain. If you're ever in the Tucson area I highly recommend hitting the museum up while you're there, It's really something that you can't miss!

I have a few videos and photos from when I was there here, some of which I used as references while painting.
