Day's End in Marathon

Day's End in Marathon
12 x 9
There are some magical places in the Southwest - West Texas is one of them. On the way to Big Bend, a stop in Marathon at the Gage Hotel is most definitely worth it...an oasis in the desert. This painting is an image of a memory from an evening there. A hot summer day in August, the sun going down. Getting ready for the Perseids meteor showers later in the night. The last rays of sunlight grazing the courtyard walls kissing the cow skull and chile ristra good evening....

Here's the source and progress photos.
