About the Painting

Driving to the Indian Palm Canyons early one morning at dawn, I discovered an even more beautiful vista in the stark desert landscape around me. The gray and brown mountains and palms lit up suddenly in the first morning light, reflecting a glorious celebration of color that lasted about 20 minutes, until the sun hit the valley floor and the color washed away into the mid-morning.

This painting was created on 1-1/2" canvas, with the painting continued aroudn the edges. The piece has been framed in a custom-made gold floater frame.
