About the Painting

Joshua Tree National Park has a beautiful ocotillo forest in the southern end of the park. During the spring, you can often see hundreds of these tall stately cacti covered in red blooms, stretching far into the distance. This painting captures the vibrant color and motion of the California desert.

This painting was done on 3/4" stretched canvas, and it has been framed in a classic plein-air frame. It will arrive wired and ready to hang.
