Charles Pabst desert landscape painting

Charles Pabst

Sonoran Monsoon

Oil on canvas

A native of Santa Clara Valley, California, Pabst graduated from Arizona State University with a degree in Fine Arts. He chose to remain in Arizona and began painting as a fine artist in 1978.

Primarily a landscape artist, Pabst interprets monumental vistas and breathtaking scenery – the beauty of the American West. His pictures convey the peaceful solitude and natural tranquility of the American Southwest, the history of which he has studied extensively.

This sweeping panorama, Sonoran Monsoon, evokes the monsoons that sweep the Sonoran desert on late summer afternoons. Its colors are rich and vibrant, with a harmonious blend of cool and warm tones that adds depth and dimension to the piece. Notice the bands of rain and bolts of lightning on the left as they give way to a golden sunset on the right. Pabst’s brushwork is loose and impressionistic, imbuing the scene with a sense of movement and energy.
