About the Painting

Autumn hues form a tapestry of color and texture in this painting of Indian Canyon Palm Oasis, in the California desert. The brush strokes are thick and expressive, creating a sense of motion within the painting. The impasto paint strokes add a sense of dimension to the scene.

"Desert Boulder" is an original oil painting created on gallery-depth stretched canvas. The piece arrives framed in a contemporary gold floater frame, ready to hang.
