"Lone Mojave Home" SOLD
watercolor on paper, 2009
9" x 12" (22.86cm x 30.48cm)
Here's a watercolor of a home out in the Mojave Desert. I always find dwellings like this rather strange because with the desert being so expansive, any lone building seems to be randomly dropped in place. There's no tree's to nestle in amongst, no rock formations, no stream, pond, lake... the house could just as easily be a few hundred yards in any direction and it would not matter.
And of course their one Christmas decoration, the string of lights tree, up year round (this from May) with it's lone star silhouetted against the desert sky further emphasizes it's singularity.39
