10" x 8" pastel on archival paper
framed under museum grade UV protective acrylic
Closed Canyon, hidden a short distance off the River Road through Big Bend Ranch State Park in Far West Texas leads to the Rio Grande. It's a favorite hike of mine. The canyon's towering walls narrow and wind a mysterious path to the big river. Light falls, but rarely reaches the canyon floor. In painting this multi-layered pastel, I chose to emphasize the thin threads of light weaving through the narrow, high walled canyon, inviting exploration.
