Today’s Artwork of the Day is a piece by American artist Maynard Dixon. Dixon, famed for his dramatic landscapes of the American West, lived and worked in California, Nevada, Utah, and Arizona, capturing the unique landscapes of each. This piece, done in tones of grey, captures a rainstorm traveling across the vast Arizona desert.
