Pure Luck

Joshua Tree by Karine Swenson
Sometimes you have to ask yourself,,,do I feel lucky?
I definitely got lucky when I received this blog
giveaway from Karine over at Ponosmom.
Her blog is named after her sweet dog, Pono.
She included this postcard which she used
as an advertisement for a recent art show.

Karine lives on the high desert near Joshua Tree, CA.

She takes her inspiration from her wonderful desert life

by painting jackrabbits, cottontails, cacti, beautiful landscapes

and of course the joshua tree as well as abstracts and printmaking.

This is a greeting card that she so kindly included.
On her blog she shows how she produces these
masterpieces.
Thanks a lot Karine for brightening my walls with
the essence of the California desert.
