Rossi visited her relatives in Phoenix, Arizona and noticed that water conservation is very important for the flora in that region. Since Arizona is in the desert, Saguaro cactus trees, Palo verde and other drought tolerant trees are important for water conservation. She also noticed the Eucalyptus trees in some areas of Scottsdale. She used some of these trees in “Desert Trees”. She used fluid acrylics to show the movement of the trees in the wind. She used Golden Fluid Acrylics in a Dick Blick Cotton Canvas. She only ships artwork that is stretched. Delivery include packaging materials and a Masonite-like board to protect the work.
