About the Painting

Desert dawn light strikes these palms with a vibrancy that seems to move on the canvas. The colors in the sky are as saturated as real life, while the abstracted nature of the painting draws one into the realm of imagination. The brush strokes are loose and impressionistic.

This painting was created on 1-1/2" canvas, with the painting continued around the edges of the gallery-wrap canvas. This artwork has been framed in a beautiful hardwood floater frame, and it arrives wired and ready to hang.
