- In this Texas Night Scene Painting, "Elephant
Tusk and Backbone Ridge Night," an original oil on panel,
I wanted to represent the depth of the night in the desert. I
camped at Rice Tank campground, inspired by the desert night,
I sketched and painted this scene by day on location until done.
So hot in the day, so cold at night, crystalline stars, and rings
around the moon.
- There may be no form of expression that truly
captures the beauty of the night at this wonderful place in Big
Bend. There are, I hope, many examples of admiration, this is
one of mine.
This is my second night scene painting of this place, the first
is No. 11
