Joshua Tree National Park is full of inspiration for painting, with its abstract piles of rocks and otherworldly Joshua Trees. This painting captures a pair of Joshuas dancing against a backdrop of California desert landscape. The brush strokes are thick and impressionistic, alive with color and motion.
