Indian Canyon in Palm Springs, California, is an oasis of surprising color in the midst of bare, desert mountainsides all around. The trickling stream of water allows for abundant growth of flowering desert plant life. This painting captures the beauty of California's desert.

"Indian Dawn" is an original oil painting created on gallery-depth canvas. The piece arrives framed in a contemporary gold floating frame, ready to hang.
