These two photos were taken at sunset of the Joshua Tree in our backyard. I like to go out and visit the blossoms every day. I love them.
This is a recent oil painting of a small Joshua Tree near Darwin, CA. It was short, but felt mighty, overlooking the valley below. I sometimes feel like this little tree, so I suppose in a way this was a self portrait. Oil on canvas, 18 x 24 inches.
I am pleased to announce that I have a number of my monotypes hanging at the 29 Palms Inn. They are on one wall, with photographs by Bruce Miller hanging on the other. The show will be up until May 1st. I also have a Joshua Tree painting at the High Desert Nature Museum in Yucca Valley as part of the Climate Change show.
