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, but that is exactly where this story lies.
