About the Painting

Joshua Tree National Park is a must-visit for anyone who loves the California desert. The joshua tree desert stretches as far as you can see in every direction, intermingled with rounded granite boulders forming unique shapes and cracks for climbers. This painting captures a summer afternoon fading into sunset.

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