Borrego Springs ocotillo painting by modern impressionist painter Erin Hanson

Velvet Shadows



30 x 24 in



Contact Gallery

The Borrego Springs desert turns surprising hues of verdant green in the springtime. The stately ocotillo cacti also turn green under the right weather conditions, and their long stalks bloom with brilliant red flowers. This painting captures all the beauty and magesty of the desert with loose brush strokes and vivid colors.

This painting was done on 1-1/2" canvas, with the painting continued around the edges. The painting has been framed in a hand-carved and gilded floater frame, and it arrives ready to hang.
