A major artist who contributes to the room decor at Hacienda del Desierto Bed & Breakfast is Lori Simons from New Hampshire who spends almost a month with us every year. An original water color hangs over the desk area in the Galleria guestroom, and a still life print hangs in that bathroom. The Patio Suite guestroom also has an original oil painting of Sabino Canyon.
In other areas of the Bed & Breakfast are original watercolors of the front gate entrance, the courtyard, and Agua Caliente Park. She also helped me design and execute a wall mural of an ocotillo for our office wall. A small table also has a painting of a Javalina. Guests who visit in February look forward to her stay with us, often purchasing new work she brings with her.
Agua Caliente Park, the subject of the painting, is 15 minutes north of our Tucson lodging. There are natural springs there which create a birding habitat. It is truly an oasis in the desert.
