In 2020 during the height of Covid I moved to the California desert town of Indio. Since moving here I have spent some time exploring my new area. I am currently working on a series of paintings of Indio and the painting pictured is the first one I have completed.
The painting of Indio pictured above is of northern Indio. Northern Indio has shopping centers and housing complexes and it also has large expanses of empty desert with large mountains behind it. Much of the rest of the town is the same.
Indio is known for hosting the Coachella and Stagecoach music concerts. The concerts happen in the spring right before all of the snow birds leave for the season. During the summer the town quiets down until fall when the snow birds return.
The painting of Indio can be purchased at Wendybsstudio90264 on Etsy.
