I’ve recently completed a new painting for the book Guardians of the Desert, written by Leona Wisoker, and published by Mercury Retrograde Press. The book will be released spring 2011. It is the sequel to Secrets of the Desert. I had a blast working with the publisher. The cover portion of the art is oil on panel. I then created a wrap version of the painting in Photoshop. The painting measures 24″ x 30″.
