A single print is created upon receiving your order. This high quality giclee will then be meticulously re-painted. Lindy uses soft pastels to add detail and rich color, so much so that each print becomes a unique artwork, a remarque. Even the original signature is painted out, so that the finished artwork can be signed anew.


an archival acid-free ivory mat and acid-free foam board backing make this elegant remarque simple to frame

12" x 18" art image is matted to outer dimensions of 18" x 24" so it fits a ready made frame

(frame not included)

A clear, resealable envelope protects your enhanced print until you frame it.


The ribbon-tied foam board case used to package this painting makes an elegant gift presentation!

A pull-off on the high road between Taos and Santa Fe seemed the perfect spot to set up my easel and paint the Rio Grande Gorge one hot June afternoon. When the lovely clouds churned up a thunderstorm, I painted faster and faster. It thundered. There was lightning. It rained. The wind gusted so fiercely, I sat on the ground, folded my plein air easel and held it in my lap. (One hand painting, the other, hanging onto the easel.) Finally, Jim coaxed me back to the truck.

The title seemed obvious to me-- a river below, a rainstorm above, and color all around me. This was among the first of my serious plein air landscapes.
