Art-A-Fair Tumbleweed Hill

"Tumbleweed Hill"
oil on panel, 2015
16" x 9" (40.64cm x 22.86cm)

Here's another currently hanging in my booth at Art-A-Fair.
This landscape is more prickly than the others, a reflection of much of Southern California's desert and savanna flora. Dry climate brush.

I was drawn to the textural qualities of this landscape, the bristled tumbleweed orbs and their march up the hill, the leftward thrust of the foreground vegetation and path and the raking light of late afternoon.308


  1. Hi David, I have just come up for air after finishing off my book and am now catching up on my favourite blogs. What a great body of work you have put together for your Art-A-Fair booth. So many beautiful paintings! I really enjoyed seeing the photos of the set-up and the one of you and your friend. Very interesting to hear how it is all unfolding. I hope you're making a lot of sales - it certainly sounds like it is a very enriching experience for you!

  2. Hi Wendy, Thank you, it has definitely been a great experience so far. I am looking forward to more as well as some events at Art-A-Fair throughout the festival season.
    Really glad I entered and have had many great art conversations with the other artists as well as the public and art lovers.
    So great to hear about your book! I have been busy too but will have to get over to your blog and see what's been happening down under.
    Keep painting...
