About The Superstition Mountains #4

Arizona is all about angular land forms heightened with color that cannot be anticipated.  

Harrison, as an Easterner who has become a fan of our topography, shares her appreciation of the West with all who view her paintings. Their boldness underscores her recognition of its visual strength.
