Late Years (1930-1953)

Throughout this period, Sandzén continued to paint at a ferocious pace. As he matured, his brushwork became smaller and he used lighter hues. By the mid-1940s, he was painting primarily on prepared Masonite board and focusing on images of the Smoky Hill River, Graham County and Front Range of the Rocky Mountains. By the end of his life, he had completed in excess of 2600 oil paintings.
