La Quinta Mountains



48 x 30 in


Contact Gallery

The Santa Rosa mountain range behind La Quinta is most beautiful at dawn, when the warm morning light illuminates the mountains and brings out all the beautiful color of the desert. This impressionistic painting captures the light and movement of the outdoors with wide, loose brush strokes and vivid color.

This painting was done on 1-1/2" canvas, with the painting continued around the edges for a 3-dimensional effect. The piece has been framed and it arrives ready to hang.
