About the Painting

Joshua Tree National Park is filled with unique, white granite boulders that reflect and capture the desert's changing light. The yucca plants and Joshua trees look beautiful in the cool colors of dawn.

This painting was created on museum-depth canvas, with the painting continued around the edges of the stretched canvas. The painting arrives ready to hang, with framing optional.
