Dawn. High Noon. Sunset. Three scenes within a mile of one another, painted on location from one day on a high country Jeff Davis County, Texas ranch outside my studio. I chose a panoramic Pastebord, then measured out a space for each postcard-sized scene the day before I painted them.
These locations are so close, you can see each one from the others.
I painted on the "mat" to show that the three paintings are on one surface. Frank Reaugh, "Dean of Texas painters" and a contemporary of Remington and Russell inspired that technique. Reaugh would do as many as a dozen small paintings on a sheet of paper, then draw a window pane mat around them. The viewer can discover that all three of my miniature plein air paintings are connected in more ways than the landscapes' proximity.
