Shaggy date palms stand proudly before the jagged mountains of Anza Borrego State Park. These palms mark the entrance of the local camping ground. The desert plantlife is green and full after the spring rains. The brush strokes in this painting are loose and impressionistic, alive with color and motion.

This painting was done on 3/4" canvas. The painting arrives framed in a dark cherry wood frame to match the rich colors in the painting.
