30" x 24" original pastel painting*

on archival sanded board
under non-reflective museum glass
Big Bend National Park
When the sun drenches the desert of Big Bend National Park in the sparkling color of gemstones, the rugged landscape becomes a tapestry of rich velvet. This time of decking out in rubies is fleeting, a waltz with the sun that the ends all too soon.
In painting this landscape, I had to constantly remind myself that the scattered glimmers of light tell this story. It's difficult to work in the dark mid-tones for so much of a painting!

about acquiring this original landscape painting
SUNDANCE is conservation framed under non-reflective museum glass with a rich coffee bean colored molding of finely carved wood hand-rubbed with a hint of antique gold accent that picks up the rich colors of the grass.
Here's how it looks hanging on a sample wall, so you can better judge the size. Also notice that fine framing complements the art, which means it will match most any decor. When the traditional wood frame hangs over a starkly contemporary table, this framed original becomes a striking focal point to a minimalist room. Or hang it in a office to add warmth and create a window for temporary respites from phones, paperwork and computer screens.
