This deep cirque canyon in Big Bend National Park is officially known as "Burro Mesa PourOff", but Jim and I will always think of it as "shadow canyon", a deep and mysterious watershed that beckons you in with its siren song of color leading into its dark folds. For this large painting, we arrived in the dark, then waited for the sun to drench the rocks and grass below in dawn's first light.

about acquiring this large original oil painting

DRENCHED IN DAWN 24" x 36" oil © Lindy Cook Severns is framed in a wide moulding of rich dark wood rubbed and accented in antique gold.

This large traditional oil painting is an attention-grabber, especially suitable for hanging over a fireplace or sofa. The simple elegance of the frame complements the art and will blend with most decor. Lighting, whether natural or artificial, will make this oil change moods along with the day, which is among the delightful attributes of classically painted oils.

This painting is shown actual size on walls to give you an idea of the space it will claim.
