The saguaro cactus and the blue mountains are always favorite subjects for the Arizona desert landscape paintings or prints. This combines the saguaro with the bloom of the hedgehog cactus, making it a very pretty rendition of the desert.  Yes, mountains in the distance, often appear to be blue in the Arizona desert.  It's amazing how many people don't see that until they start to discuss one of my paintings, and look up to see a blue mountain.  As an artist I enjoy helping people to see what is there, and what is felt.

Monitor settings may make a difference in the colors and values you see.  I've adjusted these photos to look as close to the originals as possible, but I cannot see what is on your monitor.  There is more information on my FAQ page about monitor settings.
