Salton Sea Desert
20″ x 16″
Salton Sea Desert 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” by Charlie Price, 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. Author Charlie Price is an Edgar award-winning novelist and my husband.
