Ship of the Desert is part of the Domesticated collection. This watercolor was painted after a 2018 vacation to Jordan. We spent two days in the ancient Nabatean city of Petra where domesticated animals are still used in everyday life. I am so grateful and in awe of these incredibly adaptable animals after witnessing them in the Middle East. We owe so much to them, as they still create a livelihood for families and help us humans thrive in such harsh landscapes. Their ability to flourish in the desert is beyond my comprehension, and they deserve our utmost respect. I highly recommend traveling to Jordan to experience the rich and friendly culture, history, and unmatched landscapes.
