    Like most of the other Laguna Beach artists during the 1920s, Anna A. Hills was a frequent visitor to Palm Springs to look for subject matter to paint. The December 28, 1923 issue of The Laguna Life, p. 3, reported the Misses Anna and Nellie Hills left Riverside for Palm Springs on December 17 to paint for the holidays.It was from this painting trip that she painted Desert Gold, which is a splendid example of her facility in palette knife painting.
