A line of palms sweeps along the base of the Santa Rosa Mountains, the windswept fronds reaching towards the desert sky. The brush strokes in the painting are loose and impressionistic, capturing all the life and movement of the outdoors.

This painting was done on 1-1/2" canvas, with the painting continued around the edges of the canvas. The piece has been framed in a simple, 23kt gold floating frame.
