"Sunrise Near Joshua Tree, CA"

20" W x 16" H  oil on canvas in a contemporary gray wood frame

   A desert sunrise near Joshua Tree, California showing dramatic clouds, mesas,
mountains, and featuring the common Joshua trees and Gambel's quail. A simple iPhone snapshot of this unique area near where the Mojave and Colorado deserts meet has been transformed into this powerful remembrance.

My thoughts:
"I believe that an original painting is the direct expression of an artist’s ideas, thoughts, observations, and skills onto a painted surface.  The sole conduit between the two is the artist’s hand, guided by experience. The viewer is free to imagine the artist’s point of view, or to interpret the work solely from within their own frame of reference. As the owner of an original piece of art, the viewer is free to assign to the painting a personal meaning and enjoy for many years the satisfaction that results."
