Vibrant color gleams from this desertscape. The expressionist, almost abstract quality of the clouds and landscape create a sense of beauty beyond the ordinary desert colors. Each brush stroke is deliberately applied to form a rhythm of light and texture across the canvas. The piece captures the true feeling of being outside in the fresh outdoors.

This painting was created on 1-1/2"-deep canvas, with the painting continued around the edges of the canvas. It has been framed in acontemporary gold floater frame, which complements the warm colors in this piece.
