    Driving from Marfa to Fort Davis is always scenic, but even more so when clouds cast late day shadows across the mountains of the high desert. The irregular patterns of light and shadow are especially dramatic in late spring, before summer rains turn the ranchland green. Gold-soaked, the tall grass shimmers and waves beneath the deep blue-shadowed mountains in a tribute to the passing day.


    This small pastel landscape painting is richly layered in color. The texture and color of the elegant wooden frame echoes the dark notes in the golden grass.

    • Framed Under Museum Glass

      Museum Glass offers the ultimate viewing experience, while protecting your original painting from the damaging UV light, moisture and smudges. In most lighting situations, this premier quality glass virtually disappears.


      Museum Glass is easy to maintain:

      Never spray glass cleaner on a painting--liquid might seep past the glass and onto your art. Don't use ammonia-based cleaners at all. Chemicals can damage the coating on museum glass.

      Clean fingerprints and dust using a soft, microfiber cloth.

      Your framed art will be good to go for generations to come!
