About the Painting

The ocotillo forest in Joshua Tree is lush with thickly growing cacti, the ocotillos alive with red blooms in the spring. This contemporary impressionist painting captures the movement and color of the southern California desert.

This painting was created on 3/4"-deep canvas. It has been framed in a beautiful complementary plein air frame and arrives wired and ready to hang.
