The full title of this painting is San Jacinto from Desert Hot Springs (Windmills). It was painted on a beautiful Thanksgiving weekend in an empty lot in Desert Hot Springs, California. That purple mountain majesty is Mount San Jacinto, which towers over the city of Palm Springs. I set up my newly-invented car easel and did a quick 8-foot wide painting, while Lawrence read a book and mostly napped. It was a fine afternoon!
