Salton Sea Desert

Salton Sea Desert, Mixed Media by Joan Pechanec 20” x 16” $375 This is a mixed media piece chosen for the juried show “Between the Covers”, art inspired by books, at the Siskiyou Arts Museum in Dunsmuir, California. This is an interpretation of a scene in the thriller “Desert Angel” where a girl is running through the desert to escape her mother’s killer. I painted the landscape in a surrealistic fashion reflecting Angel’s intense and dazed state of mind. Artistically I was interested in the patterns and dimensional texture of the scene. (Charlie Price is an Edgar award-winning novelist and my husband.)
