Before Fall appears I lke to post this, because
it's hard to get the "feel" of a blazing desert sun burning on one's skin, plants are dried up, hardly any shade, or water to be found, when things are cooling down around you, and at dawn a veil of fog and clouds covers the landscape.
Because I know a little about drought, having lived in California for 20+ years, I started with this painting in April 2010 after the eruption of the volcano in Iceland. dealing with weather disasters. It belongs in the middle of a series of 13-15 paintings.
So this painting is not about a nice desert landscape,
it is such a serious drought, that people start digging for water.
