Desert Gems
ORIGINAL OIL by Linda Besse
26" X 44"

The star dunes of Namibia's Skeleton coast are a sight to behold! Rising out of the desert, these brightly hued geological features are the result of iron oxidation in the sand in one of the oldest deserts on earth. Multiple wind directions keep these dunes mostly stationary and build them to great heights. Add the fact that one of Africa's most striking antelopes, gemsbok, call this place home, and you have a painting.
