Lindy Cook Severns pastel landscape painting



Soft pastels on archival paper

12" x 16" art is unframed





Big Bend and the borderlands of the Rio Grande show signs of habitation for thousands of years. This spring, which trickles across rock at the head of this deep arroyo is in the midst of wonderful rock art. The trail was no wider than my foot, and so steep, I won't be returning. But it I'm glad I hiked all the way to the spring this once.
