Tall Texan hand-repainted print 16x12
Flowering yucca atop rock cliff
Davis Mountains landscape painting
artist Lindy Cook Severns
unique hand-repainted fine art print, one-of-a-kind work of art | Artist Signature
custom printed giclee on fine art paper
I print a single copy, then my high quality giclee is meticulously painted over. I use color-rich soft pastels to add detail, and to reclaim highlights and vivid color. This tender process ultimately creates a unique artwork, a remarque. I even paint over my original signature, then sign the finished artwork anew to indicate that it now stands alone, a new artwork made just for YOU.
an archival acid-free ivory mat and acid-free foam board backing make this elegant artwork ready to frame.
The 16" x 12" art image is matted to outer dimensions of 20" x 16" so it fits a ready made frame (frame not included). The frame you choose can add up to 6" in each dimension, making a substantial wall statement. (Click the dots to scroll thru the images to see the sample walls and virtual frames to get an idea of the comparative size of this art.) You can also take it to a framer and have a colored mat placed over the existing one. Whatever works for you will make this painting happy!
A clear, resealable envelope protects the enhanced print until you frame it, and the ribbon-tied foam board case we package this painting in makes an elegant gift presentation.
This remarque is the same size as the original pastel painting. For that reason, we recommend this size option! It's the largest size we can reproduce this painting in, but smaller formats are also available.

By default, anything that rises above the horizon to penetrate the big West Texas sky becomes a landscape superstar. Adding to its glory, this yucca was blooming unseasonably late, and topped a dramatic rock cliff along the scenic route through Davis Mountains ranchland. It didn't have to audition twice to become the subject for a painting.
In this composition, the noonday light directs your eye upward along the rock wall. I want you to sense the climb, then the triumph of coming onto the brightly lit strip of golden grass. The stately plant pulls you toward its giant flower stalk, then releases you into the cloud.
I did part of this painting as a demo on using light to create excitement in a painting. It's all about the magical journey art takes you on.
