As sometimes happens with art, the beginning to the completion of a piece takes years. Quite awhile back, I painted a desert landscape---but---I set it aside. It was just too ho-hum. Obviously, I wasn't feeling any inspiration for it. Actually, I have set aside a few other works, too---apparently, their time had not come either. Then, recently, for some reason, I began picking up these abandoned works---taking a fresh look at each piece---and those wonderful feelings of inspiration awoke in me. For example, with this particular desert-scape, I could see sand crabs walking toward me, cresting the dunes---marching with disregard for the blazing desert sun and fire-hot sand. They kept coming---never taking their eyes off me. I had to paint them---just like I saw them---walking toward me on blistering dunes.

The title: "The Watchers" is borrowed from the title of an abstract sculptural piece by Lynn Chadwick (1960).

- Original oil on board
- 18"x 24" (image unframed)
- Gallery framed, ready to hang
- deep shadows of blues and purple
- rich tans with reds and yellows
- of purpose and determination
- of unwavering focus
- a strong piece of art for any wall
