"20 Year Green"

Unfinished: This painting requires a little more punch and I might repaint the foreground.
Oil on Belgian linen panel, 9"x12"

2006 was one of the wettest years in recent history for the Texas transpecos. I made several trips into Big Bend that year and could not remember ever seeing so much lush green foliage in the desert. The Chihuahuan desert is lush as deserts go but this was one incredible year for the transpecos.
