California Joshua Trees


Art: California Joshua Trees by Artist Diane Funderburg Deam

These are the Joshua Trees of the High Desert in Southern California.  The name Joshua tree was given by a group of Mormon settlers who crossed the Mojave Desert in the mid-19th century. The tree's unique shape reminded them of a Biblical story in which Joshua reaches his hands up to the sky in prayer.

I have spent my entire life in the Mojave Desert.  When I first moved to the High Desert I was not impressed by the Joshua trees.  I thought they were ugly.  After learning their history I became a fan.  I painted my first Joshua tree in 1977.
