Daily small paintings- and an occasional larger one-in a quest to refine my craft and above all, enjoy the process

Tubac Santa Ritas 15.5x24 oil on canvas unframed $700
I've been working on some paintings of the Santa Rita Mountains south of Tucson, Arizona. I find landscapes difficult, as I like them best when they are not too removed from reality, yet i'm not at all inclined to produce photorealist paintings. I'm trying to land on a style that suits me and conveys my impression of the landscape. So far, the best inspiration I've found for the Southwest landscape is Maynard Dixon- and Georgia O'Keefe has some interesting takes on it as well.
