#smoketree #Borregosprings #oilpainting , "Desert Beauty", Borrego Springs CA
Last week I had the opportunity to paint in Borrego Springs California, during the annual plein air event hosted by the Borrego Springs Art Institute. This image is my favorite painting, out of the 10 that I painted, shown as it hangs on the gallery wall. Painting in the desert it was so quiet you could almost hear the silence. I was smitten with the subtle colors and constantly changing light. The main mountain that Borrego Springs is nestled up against, Indian Head, starts out a brilliant pink with each sunrise and ends the day in shades of blue.
