Ghost Ranch Glow

Cliff Cavin’s painting entitled "Ghost Ranch Glow"  is composed of cool hues and deep saturated tones.  The painting is layer upon layer of shadowy plains beginning with lofty greenery and numerous dynamic horizontal plateaus.

The mostly horizontal landscape is punctuated by vertical rock formations catching the light of day.   The sophisticated area tends to be arid, consequently the choice and harmony of color is somewhat greyed, but, refreshing and inviting.  

The sky is secondary but contributes to the glow and contrast between light and dark elements making this painting memorable.
