Moonrise in Mojave Desert

About the artwork

I stayed in Las Vegas for three weeks to be with my daughter who was living there at the time.  One day i took a trip to see the Grand Canyon and Mojave desert, i was so overwhelmed with the beauty of this desert i painted two large acrylic/oil painting trying to capture the different lights of this amazing place.

This original painting is structured mainly from using a multi layer technique of illuminous acrylic paint and oils creating a pioneering effect of changing moods as the light moves through the room in which they are hanging.

The near mythical paintings highlight Jacqui’s staggering ability to capture the effects of light and shade of different atmospheres.  These paintings are cloaked in mystery and intrigue showing the incredible beauty of the play of light upon the earth.

If you would like to purchase this original painting or see a gallery of work, contact Jacqui to make an appointment.
