Desert Hues



20 x 30 in



Contact Gallery

A high mountain ridge spotted with ocotillo plants overlooks the distant, immense mountains of the San Jacinto range. The desert colors of taupe and gold merge with shadows of lavender and blue. Each brush stroke is thick and impressionistic, alive with color and motion.

"Desert Hues" is an original oil painting on stretched canvas. The piece arrives framed in a closed corner, gold floater frame.
