This original oil painting is created in an impressionist style with bold brush work. The image is near California’s Santa Rosa Mountains. This location is a popular hiking area near La Quinta, CA. The beautiful blue-gray and chocolate colored mountains are contrasted by the yellow-orange, ochre, and mustard colors of the soon to be tumbleweed bushes. The bushes have small amounts of bright orange in them and the sand has some of the light blues from the sky in it. The dark grey shadows on the ground add drama and power to this majestic piece of art. The color harmony is this scene makes it a pleasing and warm addition to any space.
