Joshua Tree

giant granite boulders create a surreal backdrop for the various plant life, while thousands of Joshua trees dot the land as far as you can see.

cacti are at once spare yet full of personality. fragile, yet durable.  each unique in shape and proportion. I cannot get enough of them!

This weekend I've been reflecting back on the past year and where I was this time last April, both in my life and with my art.  I took a weekend trip to Joshua Tree that filled me with awe and set me down a slightly divergent path style-wise with my work, one that I've been quietly exploring. Here a few of my favorite pics and illustrations from those travels, inspired by the dusty, washed out colors of the California desert.
