Description

Completely refreshing scene, especially when you live in the desert and are "enjoying" another very hot summer.

About the Artist (1911-2007)  "Born in Halstead, KS,  Albert grew up in Wyoming and moved to southern California with his family in 1923.  He began painting about 1930 while working as a postmaster in Oro Grande, a small town in the Mojave desert.  

In 1933 he met Edgar Payne and studied with him for two years while on painting forays into the High Sierra and the desert around Palm Springs.   He then studied with Sam Hyde Harris at the Businessmen's Art Institute in Los Angeles.  

During WWII he began work as an engineer making products vital to the war effort while studying at the Art Center School in Pasadena.  After a year in Cuernavaca, Mexico in the mid-1940s, he returned to Los Angeles."  This biography was appropriated from AskArt.com
