Oasis Blooms



36 x 36 in



Contact Gallery

This painting was inspired by an afternoon hike through Thousand Palms Oasis, in the California desert. The lush plantlife growing around McCallum Pond catches the warm afternoon light, and the rocky ground glows with color. The brush strokes in this painting are loose and impressionistic, vibrantly alive with motion.

This painting was created on 1-1/2" canvas, and the painting is continued around the edges of the canvas. The painting has been framed in a custom-made gold floater frame.
