Barbara Ann Spencer Jump Art Work of the American Southwest

Watercolor Painting

San Xavier de Bac

San Xavier de Bac painting artist Barbara Ann Spencer Jump

San Xavier - White Dove of the Desert

Watercolor painting on 140 lb paper -  16" x 12"

The San Xavier mission is south of Tucson, Arizona.  It has a long history as it brought European culture to the southwest.  I enjoy visiting when I can, and love to arrive at dawn on days when the sky is filled with a little moisture and maybe even a little dust because the skies can be so dramatic.  Dramatic skies make for great inspirations for paintings!

This original painting is not currently matted or framed. 

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.
