Ocotillo Light



40 x 50 in



Contact Gallery

Delicate morning light plays over the ocotillo cacti in Borrego Springs, casting a blanket of warmth over the landscape. The painting is alive with the movement of the outdoors and captures the feeling of standing in the California desert, surrounded by the beauty of early spring.

This painting was created on 1-1/2" canvas, with the painting continued around the edges. The piece will be framed in a gold floater frame and arrives ready to hang.
