California Desert Landscape Oil Painting – Anza Borrego Yucca

March 28th, 2009

Yucca at Anza Borrego
(San Diego County)
9 x 12 oil on canvas

A visit to the Anza Borrego Desert State Park inspired this painting of yucca and desert wildflowers. When the rainfall is sufficient and in the right quantity and at the right time, the color is breathtaking, even though short-lived.

Tomorrow is the spring group show and sale of Allied Artists of the Santa Monica Mountains and Seashore, and I’ll be showing about 15 paintings including many that have not been exhibited before. The show starts at 11 and goes through 5 pm at Headwaters Corners, at the intersection of Topanga and Mulholland Drive in the Santa Monica Mtns. If you get a chance come on out. I’m going to be finishing up my framing and packing for the rest of today. Come on out if you’re in the area. Art, beautiful weather, friendly artists and refreshments.

  3. Thanks Marian, oh, yeah, we do get around, at least in our corner of the state. We were down to Fallbrook recently – Anza Borrego is not far away. The Santa Rosa Plateau near Lake Elsinore has a lot of wildflowers blooming now – a good place to paint.
