In Perdenales Sky the harmony of evening is in deep saturated tones as nightfall arrives. The meandering river leads diagonally to the burst of fall color, to the gorge, the plateau and finally the sky. The rough terrain is punctuated by native growth that seeks moisture in the rain faceted rugged elevations leading upward to the clear sky.
In Perdenales Autumn the smooth reflecting water is enclosed by rough textured boulders and a stand of trees in seasonal color. As the trees curve one is invited beyond that which is seen. The curve is balanced by a tree and shadows as a forerunner. In juxtaposition a much larger singular tree stands guard as if to announce welcome to the change of season. The two painting by Cliff Cavin document in artistic form the passing of time and the changes that only a natural life force can produce. We are privileged to share his view, the bold and jubilant strokes of paint, and the optimism in which Cliff invites us. The two paintings honor change and time and embrace the desire to acknowledge it as Cliff Cavin shares his impression of the Perdenales Valley.
