8x10 oil on canvas panel......SOLD
This plein-air oil painting is from a dayhike into the lesser-known areas of the Great Basin National Park...one of the most remote areas of the West. Mining was a large part of the old economy before the turn of the century...and this road was made and used by those long gone gold miners. Just up the road is a dugout...not the baseball kind...but a dwelling built into the hillside as shelter from the bitter winds of Nevada. But on this bright June day in 2007..the past melted into the present...perfect.
