About the Painting

Borrego Springs in California's southern desert becomes alive with color in the springtime. The desert scrub blooms with purple and yellow flowers, while the stately ocotillos give birth to bright red, bird-like flowers. This oil painting is painted with loose, painterly brush strokes, creating a sense of motion within the painting.

This painting was created on a gallery-depth canvas with the painting continued around the edges. The painting will arrive in a beautiful hardwood floater frame, ready to hang.
