Texas Night Scene Painting

"Glenn Spring"
(Big Bend National Park, Texas)
11" x 14"
Painted on site
Oil on Panel
No. 14
This Texas Night Scene Painting, "Glenn Spring," an original oil on panel, was painted on location at night under lights in the middle of the desert where water springs up from the desert floor in a draw below. A little creek then runs an eighth of a mile and disappears back into the floor of the draw. There are frogs adapted to this little micro world that live nowhere else. There was once a village here that was massacred. It was just too scary to camp in the lower site, but as I was leaving I discovered this view at night form the top of the wash above the spring. I painted the stars and moon as they were. I painted all night under the drone of generated lights.
