Near the West Texas border along the Rio Grande, mountains and desert seem to stretch one after another toward infinity.
I painted this pastel landscape in the winter of 2015 after spending six weeks in Big Curator's Note: Lindy has a way of accentuating every detail of her landscapes. She took the time to revisit this print, and bring out major details, which gives it all the depth of the original piece.
Bend National Park, where cactus thorns far outnumber people. We watched the sunset paint the Sierra del Carmen in the rich blues and carmines and peach hues that mark the park's famous sundowns, miles not only from civilization but also from the nearest other humans.
I share the serene elegance and fine detail of the desert in this unique but affordable fine art reproduction that is close kin to an original painting. This is a remarque, a one of a kind, hand-repainted fine art print on archival paper. I use soft pastels to add richer color and detail; I even paint over my signature, then add a new one to signify that this enhanced print is a new and unique painting.
Clouds towering above vast horizons. Scraggly critters. Blossoms nestled in cactus spines. I'm a seventh generation Texan, and the desert southwest is in my blood. In Houston, Midland, Lubbock, I've always been an artist. For two decades, I co-piloted a corporate jet beside my captain husband. I'm passionate about painting silent sunrises, rioting sunsets and the seductively beautiful, treacherous clouds I once skirted with respect. Flying was good, but as a 2004 Xmas gift to ourselves, we hung up our wings, sold our Lubbock, TX home of 26 years and intending to travel the continent, moved into a big RV. A trip to the remote Texas mountains changed our plans. We're still full-time RVers and love the freedom, but we rooted onto a ranch into the high desert of Far West Texas. I have a rustic studio within walking distance of our mountainside RV site. Across from my studio is a high- end fine art gallery, where I'm the artist-in-residence. Our neighbors are wildlife. It's a good life!
