About the Painting

The last light of a setting sun illuminates this desert landscape, the tall California palms silhouetted against the colorful clouds. The brush strokes in this painting are loose and impressionistic, alive with color and texture.

This painting was done on 1-1/2" canvas, with the painting continued around the edges. The piece has been framed in a custom gold floating frame.
