The view from here, a watercolor landscape

   
When the light and water are just right, poppies bloom across the desert. Ghosts of the past linger on the wind as shadows collect the heady scents of spring. Our home was made among the power lines and oil derricks of the California countryside; I have never known an uninterrupted sky.

Desert Views is watercolor and watercolor, wax crayon and ink on 140lb paper, 39 x 42 inches.
