"Sunset over Camelback" 12" X 24" Acrylic Mounted on 2" deep Cradled Panel

Sunset over Camelback by April M Rimpo
June of last year my husband and I spent a week in the Phoenix Arizona area, where we had lived for 17 years. We visited new food spots we had heard about, checked out the two homes we had lived in, went to a gallery in Old Town Scottsdale, visited Taliesin West (where Frank Lloyd Wright had an architecture school), and had an opportunity to visit with several friends while in the area. One set of friends had their annual wine party our last weekend, which we got to enjoy.

We stayed in a wonderful cabana at the home of another pair of friends for most of the week. They were great hosts, threw a party inviting former work buddies of my husband's, and treated us to great views of the McDowell mountains from their backyard and Camelback Mountain from the front yard. One evening I must have taken 50 photographs looking west toward Phoenix, as the sunset over Camelback Mountain. 

I finally painted Sunset over Camelback to remember our trip.  We had never lived in a location that was high enough in elevation to have such a wonder view of the mountain. Thanks to great friends whose company we got to enjoy while we were in town.
