The tequila sunrise reference is from Tucson, Arizona, which is home to the Saguaro National Park. These majestic Saguaros are found exclusively in the Sonoran Desert.
Saguaro National Park
The Sonoran Desert experiences winter and summer rains, and the Saguaro obtains most of its moisture during the summer rainy season.
The most critical factors for growth are water and temperature. If the elevation is too high, the cold weather and frost can kill the Saguaro.
Saguaros can live as much as 150-200 years old with the right growing conditions.
Saguaros are very slow-growing cacti. For example, a 10-year-old plant might only be 1.5 inches tall. However, Saguaro can grow between 40-60 feet tall (12-18m). When rain is plentiful and the Saguaro is fully hydrated, it can weigh between 3200-4800 pounds.
As a Sedona artist, my artwork is filled with creativity and glorious, vivid colors, yet my style is utterly unique. So whether your preference is for realistic, interpretive, or somewhere in-between, selecting one of my paintings is easy.
