Desert Flower - Art


In Desert Flower, vibrant, striking colors capture the beauty of a flower that grows in one of the most hostile environments in the world. The flower in the painting is depicted in bright coral shades, a color that is associated with warmth and life. The flower is an example of the tenacity of life, for it is able to survive, even thrive, in a nearly waterless environment.

The water source from which the desert flower derives its moisture is also depicted in this painting. The large patch of blue represents a desert oasis, a lone body of water that provides a central hub for all life in the desert. The colorful images of the flower and the oasis are set in a brown background that represents the rest of the desert at large. Desert Flower is an abstract piece that nevertheless captures truthfully the conditions that exist in the desert.
