Strong, warm earthy colours inspired by a recent visit to the beauty of the Valley of Fire in the Mojave desert. I was struck by the intensity of the colours - they seemed almost unreal.
The painting has been built with many layers of colours. As with my other work the painting is the result of a process that involves applying paint thickly, scratching it it off, re-applying paint and taking it off again.
The canvas is painted around the edges and is ready for hanging.
