matted in acid-free ivory


In Far West Texas, where peaks embrace clouds and the terrain plummets to the lowland desert floor then up again, often in a ver short distance, each fold and tuck of the land can foster its own season. Yucca flowers magically appear in protected pockets of sunny warmth long before green grass carpets the mountains.

Watercolor washes in this small, fresh painting share the patchy pastel undercolors of the high desert forest, while the composition and detailed drawing suggests the energy of new growth by this hardy desert dweller.

This 10" x 8" original is matted in a heavy, acid-free ivory matboard and framed under non-reflective museum glass for the ultimate viewing experience.

about acquiring this original watercolor


Pockets of Spring in West Texas is framed under non-reflective museum glass and in rich gold wood. The glass disappears so completely, someone might try to pick a blossom off your wall!
