THE RIVER BETWEEN THE LANDS

The Rio Grande may define the border between West Texas and old Mexico, but the lands along its banks are cut from the same earth.
This sandbar is off the River Road. We hiked along the Texas banks one afternoon, amazed at the hidden pockets of life along the Big River. The cane breaks offered a colorful contrast to the blue sky and cloudy waters, so I gave them center stage, but it was the sparkling sand that I gave the most attention as I painted this Big Bend landscape.
