2022 Indian Wells Arts Festival Commemorative Print


“Superbloom Sunset” official commemorative print. Original painting by Jan Bushart.


“Superbloom Sunset” official commemorative print. Original 36”w x 48”h oil on canvas painting by Jan Bushart. This is a 6-color hexichrome print with outstanding reproduction. Print size 18” x 24” fits standard frame size. Inspired by the superbloom of 2019, Jan memorialized the ‘golden hour’ she witnessed during a hike in Palm Springs’ Indian Canyons, where a setting sun cast a magical glow onto the thousands of flowers in bloom. Vibrant flora in hues of red, purple, yellow and green are saturated with the luminescence of the sun retreating behind the San Jacinto Mountains. In choosing a color palette Jan notes that a sunset can be tricky because it influences every color in the painting, with the light being incredibly warm, making the shadows cooler. “I wanted a dynamic painting, so I chose primary colors for my most saturated color: red, blue -violet and yellow,” Jan explains, and says that her favorite part about this painting is “the magical light on the incredible superbloom. The desert is transformed by both the superbloom and the sunset.” Jan’s hope is that “Superbloom Sunset” will inspire viewers to share in her love of nature and support of national and state parks and Indian Reservations like Indian Canyons.
