High Desert Hummingbird and Ocotillo

One of my favorite plants in the high desert is the Ocotillo with it's blend of rugged stalks that rise up to 15' high and it's delicate red and orange flowers. Hummingbirds love these when they bloom in the springtime. This piece was done with an under painting of pure black, then layers of color applied leaving portions of the black showing through. Original is acrylic on an extra deep gallery canvas and measures 15" x 30". Meant to be hung without a frame (black frame is part of painting and extends around the sides).
