    Baja California Sur is known for romantic, colorful sunsets, as well as upscale resorts, fine seafood, fishing, surfing and, for younger people, college break parties, but it’s the dramatic sunsets over the tranquility of the desert that I love the most. The juxtaposition of rough, scrubby, dry landscape with deliciously colorful sky satisfies a hunger for a complete experience beyond simply the visual. As an artist,too, the painting of such a sunset encompasses more than broad strokes of paint, but instead, attention to weight, color upon color, luminescence, subtle nuance, values denoting distances and relationships, the cools and warms and effects of high, and moving air on vaporous cloud matter. While we aren’t always aware of what it is we need specifically and aesthetically from nature or art, a sunset on the desert offers itself up to both heart and mind.
