Warm dawn light strikes the curving surfaces of Joshua Tree National Park's famous granite boulders. The sky above is streaked with hues of lavender and orange. Each impressionistic brush stroke conveys the color and drama of the landscape.

"Joshua Dawns" was created on 1-1/2" canvas, with the painting continued around the edges. The piece arrives framed in a contemporary gold floater frame.
