Thumb Butte is the Iconic Landmark in Prescott. I am fortunate enough to have a beautiful view of it right outside my window. It is one reason I bought my home 15 years ago, and it never disappoints me as the seasons go by, the weather changes, and the sun shifts over the butte.
It has been a special place to me since moving here. The Yavapai Indians call it the Sleeping Lion, and it is sacred to them. No wonder I am drawn to painting this butte frequently. I have painted it in all its splendor, and in all it’s seasons. This time I painted it as an early morning study on vellum paper. I love these small studies 9″ X 12″ matted to 12″ X 16″ and ready to frame.
My paintings of Thumb Butte never last long. So let me know if you are interested.
Have a marvelous New Year, may it be the best ever.
