Rain is always welcome in the high desert ranch land of Far West Texas. On this afternoon, a rare winter thunderstorm built over ranchland in the Davis Mountains, dropping the irregular patterns of light and shadow that make this country so interesting to paint.
In this pastel skyscape, several layers of warm color lie beneath the colors you first see in this southwest landscape painting-- this "underpainting" shows through, giving depth and movement to the clouds and dimension to the grass and mountains. You, the viewer subconsciously blend the unexpected underlying color with the "real" color of things, which makes this painting infinitely more interesting than if I'd defined all for you.
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.
