Superior Architecture – Globemallow Arch and Picketpost Mountain, AZ
30×60 Oil on Canvas
Over 800 people used to live near here in a town called Pinal. They were caught up in the Silver King Mine boom of 1878. The architecture they built has melted into the ground. Dinner plate shards from the once booming hotel lay next to Apache tears and other stones in Queen Creek. But Picketpost mountain and wild plants that adorn her and the canyons here remain. And year after year, the wildflowers bloom.
They arch in the wind and glow with colors that are timeless. And the new-old town, Superior, Arizona, is bustling with new life and cold beer.
These are the places that make Arizona special. It’s a privilege to paint them.
