I lived by the glorious Organ Mountains for about 20 years. I treasure my time living in the desert. Admittedly, at first I thought the desert was an awful lot of brown. But it revealed itself to me as I learned patience & a deeper way of seeing the world. The desert gifts us with pops of bright color among the nuances of shades of brown, blue, purple, pink, & even green.
When the rain is just enough but not too much, beautiful orange/yellow poppies bloom in the foothills & up on the mountainsides.
Used brushes & acrylic on gesso-prepared mixed media, sealed with varnish to protect & enhance.
Painting will be sandwiched between two pieces of cardboard & shipped Priority Mail within the US at no cost, in a size-appropriate cardboard box or envelope.
