So, what exactly then does the above piece mean? A clue could be in the title. I am beginning to really love the desert. Not the nitty gritty I-live-in-the-desert-every-day kind of thing but more the I-want-to go-to-the-desert-and-just-absorb-it kind of thing. When we were in Nevada two weeks ago, I loved the views of the mountains which are both near and far; the endless creosote bushes/sagebrush and seemingly endless sky. There is greenery where you least expect it, blue sky peeking out from a slot canyon, and astonishing rock forms in an unbelievable array of colors. The desert is formidable too-lovely, beautiful and deadly. (I saw more people set out for a walk/hike with no water, clothes coverings, or hats.) If the desert doesn't put the fear of God into a person I don't know what would.
So yes, this is a simple geometric piece that might not scream immediately "desert love" or may not even obviously convey what I was thinking when I made it. No matter. If you like the colors and it matches your sofa, that's a win-win!
Happy Easter to everyone (or Passover or Spring or what have you). Thanks for reading and commenting.
