Found in Phoenix, Arizona, this is a striking and unusual modern work by a talented but so far unidentified hand, 20" by 24" plus narrow simple wood frame, signed at lower right and dated there 1981. The scene is buildings, depicted in a semi-abstract, even cubist manner, all in various earth tones such as cream, tan, brown, and yellow. A pale blue sky and foreground makes for a cooling, interesting contrast. The Christian cross towering over it all adds a mysterious element. The painting would complement any Southwest interior; it seems to be the sort of piece to which a decorator might be attracted--Southwestern-inspired, as well as modern. The painting's surface exhibits widely and evenly dispersed light abrasion/pinpoint losses, as seen in the photos. Perhaps "generalized wear" is more appropriate than "abrasion", as it is so evenly distributed that it is not obtrusive, and it actually makes the piece feel more vintage.
