About the Painting

The warm desert light of southern California crests over these rounded granite boulders of Joshua Tree National Park. No matter how many times one visits this park, each dawn is always a brand new revelation of color and striking contrasts of form. This painting captures the vivid and surreal nature of this beautiful landscape.

This painting was done on 1-1/2-deep canvas, with the painting continued around the edges. The piece has been framed in a gold floater frame.

Exhibited The Orange Show, The Erin Hanson Gallery, Los Angeles, CA. 2016.
