About the Painting

Early morning sun rays slant through a group of palm trees growing in Indian Canyon Oasis. Amid the arid desert, these little pockets of lush greenery and flowing water are a cool and welcome contrast. The brush strokes in this painting are thick and impressionistic, alive with color and motion.

"Rays of Light" was created on 1-1/2" canvas, with the painting continued around the edges. The painting has been framed in a custom-made, gold floating frame.
