The agave plant evokes the fiery nature of desert growth, as its points reach out in all directions, grasping its share of the terrain. This piece is part of the Desert Vintage series: desert flora painted in layers using aged wine, ink, and water washes. Even with smooth fine art paper, texture is built and a puckered character can be seen on the page.
"The smell of desert rain permeates the air as the sky turns a dusty rose. Nostalgic thoughts stir up memories of this road, driven before, ending in a rendezvous over aged wine, old friendships, and the wisdom in combining them." - Gilat Ben-Dor
