About the Painting

Joshua Tree National Park is most beautiful at dawn, the boulders glowing with myriad rainbow hues. The shadows are rich with reflected color, a beautiful contrast to the sun-lit rocks in the distance. The brush strokes in this oil painting are thick and impressionistic.

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