Artist Comments: This painting was a fun one to do. At first it appears to be a bit surreal which is not the genre of art that I normally do. I’m a realist painter and in my work I strive to represent the world as it actually appears. This painting is actually a landscape and was painted from an actual photograph that was taken in Namib-Naukluft National Park, Africa. It depicts camelthorn trees with a sand dune rising in the background. The sand dune is bathed in orange by the effects of a rising sun. The trees are in shadow from another nearby dune. Some believe these trees have been dead for hundreds of years and that their failure to decompose is because the desert is so arid.
