About the painting:
One of Hanson's early paintings of Joshua Tree National Park, this piece captures the still water and reflections of Barker Dam. The brush strokes are extra wide and thickly applied, as the artist experiements with how loose she can make her strokes while still capturing the essense of the landscape.

This painting was done on 1-1/2" canvas, with the painting continued around the edges. The painting is framed in a gold leaf floater frame to complement the colors in the piece.
