This small impressionist sketch, painted with both brush and palette knife, reflects the bright warm colors that Hills adopted once she settled in Southern California. She had studied in Europe, spending the majority of her training in England, and had brought back with her the subdued palette of British atmosphere and style, only to toss it all, as she remarked, upon experiencing California. She was particularly drawn to desert and mountain scenes, often giving equal importance to land and sky in order to express the vastness of the West. She became a leading figure in the emerging Laguna Beach art colony, similar to the community forming in Carmel to the North.
