Two photos and a painting

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.

gorgeous, karine. can't wait to see the working at the 29 palms inn. been meaning to stop by the hi-dez nature museum, too.

i took my friends here from boston out to purifoy's yesterday and shot some pictures...found relics and nests and angles i'd never noticed before. that place is SUCH an inspiration. i thought of you because there was a tiny joshua tree with those amazing flowers at eye-level, so i could finally study them. xoxo
