#Borregosprings #palmtrees "Sun Lovers" ©
Outside the Anza Borrego visitor center gates, these palms seem to spring up out of the desert floor soaking up the sun and loving it. I painted this early one morning before the crowd arrived to visit the park. This painting is one of the 10 I painted during the Borrego Springs Invitational last week.
Oil on Linen, 11" X 14"
This is the gallery walls before the final hanging. As the artists finished the paintings we brought them into the gallery framed, ready to hang. The artwork was hung so that visitors could see the work accomplished each day and decide which paintings they would like to purchase. There were 15 artists and we produced 158 paintings, in 5 days. It was worth stopping into the Borrego Springs Art Institute to see the wet paintings and different views of the desert. The paintings will hang and sell through the end of the month.
