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 miniature is a fully developed painting, rich in the layered colors of the high desert. The elegant wood frame echoes the texture and rust under-tones of the grass.
