Superstition Gold SOLD (Click here purchase on eBay)



Here's a piece that I started more than a year ago but just now finished and have put it in my eBay store for $450.00 This is an 16 x20 inch, oil on canvas, and is a scene of the Superstition Mountains at sunset, overlooking the city of Apache Junction below.
There's a great story that goes along with the Superstion Mountains. The Lost Dutchman's Mine is supposedly still hidden somewhere in the deep crevasses of it's walls. It is still hiding sacks of gold nuggets that were mined by Jacob Waltz in 1868 where he staked a claim on 160 acres on the north bank of the Salt River. Today there is a great state park that I have previously painted a few pieces from. Click on the image for a larger view.
