Iron Mountain backdrops Marathon, Texas, the gateway to Big Bend National Park. 

After the scorching heat of a West Texas summer, autumn brings soft color back to the desert. It's as if even the cactus relaxes to enjoy shorter days and cooler weather.


The way the sun backlit this foliage reminded me of changing leaves in places less harsh, yet no more beautiful than the Chihuahuan Desert. West Texas has its own color scheme for autumn, and Iron Mountain plays along by shimmering in violet, blue and magenta to match the rocky ground below.


I painted this in my studio after spending a week in Marathon and traveling around Far West Texas. Finding inspiration was easy in this magnificent high desert near Alpine.  And Jim enjoyed eating bison burgers and fries at the White Buffalo Bar in the Gage Hotel after each long day of driving, hiking and photographing.
