Palm Springs has always captivated my imagination with its desert landscape, towering palm trees and mid century architecture set against a stunning mountain backdrop. This house in particular transports me back to the 1960's and a time of backyard tiki parties, cocktail dresses and collector cars. American Architect, Charles Du Bois, designed this collection of Swiss Miss Houses as one-level, chalet-style residences sliced by dramatic A-frame roofs that rise up from the desert landscape. I love how the roofline in this painting mimics the geometry found in the fractal mountains behind.
