About the Painting

Stark desert plants and soft morning light capture the desert above the Coachella Valley. The dramatic shadows move you through the painting, the thick paint strokes jumping from the canvas in a mosaic explosion of color.

This painting was done on 2"-deep canvas, with the painting continued around the edges. It has been framed in a soft white gold floater frame that complements the sage colors in the piece.
