Snow is infrequent enough in the high desert to be considered something of beauty, rather than a bother as it is in the city. Travel problems are a moot point, as most mountain dwellers simply hunker down and stay home 'til the roads clear. Which gives us a chance to sip coffee and enjoy the view.


This heavy snowfall couldn't withstand the morning sun on the high country's volcanic peaks, and it soon melted off the red rock mountain cliffs above us. But at our 6000 foot perch, the forested shoulder of Brown Mountain kept its white blanket throughout the day. I don't know what made the bold footprints across the snowy ranch road. I was careful not to disturb them as I created my own short trail thru the snow to break the ice on the water pans we offer our wildlife neighbors.

Old Spanish Trail Studio

Fort Davis, Texas

Framed in a wide, brushed silver wood molding to echo the cold blues of the snow, this original miniature pastel landscape has outer dimensions of 15" x 13".  The southwest landscape painting is conservation framed with archival materials and sealed under UV-protective acrylic to protect it from the nasty environmental things that try to attack fine art.

We care about that, because original art is a lasting gift to yourself or someone you love.

Shown hanging actual size, FOOTPRINTS brings the serenity of snowfall to contemporary or traditional decor. This wall art is an ideal size to feature above a collection of pottery and books or beside a chair tucked away as a retreat.
