Signed Lower Right: Darwin Duncan

Over the course of his career, Duncan’s paintings largely consisted of California deserts and ranch lands. This landscape features California’s Mojave Desert. Dry sagebrush and tall cacti grow despite the intense heat, while tall mountains tower in the distance. The cool tones of the distant mountains are put in sharp contrast against the warm colors of the desert.  

“Presented to Pastor Ken Kempton with respect and appreciation for his friendship and meaningful past service to our family.” 

Pastor Ken Kempton, May 23, 1968 (Verso note)
