A surreal-like painting of the famous camelthorn (or camel thorn) trees in the desert dunes of African Namib-Naukluft National Park. The lifeless trees are in silhouette and surrounded by sand bathed in vibrant colors of orange and blue. Hand-painted and signed in the lower left-hand corner by fine artist Teresa Bernard.

This unique desert painting is painted by hand on gallery-wrapped stretched canvas. It doesn’t require a frame before display because the composition stretches around the sides of the canvas giving it a modern look. Whichever you prefer, framed or not, Camelthorn Trees of Africa will make an excellent conservation starter in your home, place of business, or wherever it is displayed.

Artist Comments

This camelthorn trees painting was a fun one to do. At first, it appears to be a bit surreal; not the art genre that I do. I’m a realist painter, which means I try to paint things as they appear. This composition is a landscape I painted from an actual photograph of the Namib-Naukluft National Park, Africa. It depicts camelthorn trees with a dune rising in the background. The 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.
