Desert Tower at Ghost Ranch

Oil on canvas, Image: 16"h x 20"w, Frame: 19.25"h x 23.25"w, Item No. 21772,

Kathryn Stedham’s ‘Desert Tower at Ghost Ranch’ embodies the dramatic beauty of the landscape of Ghost Ranch bathed in the warm hues of a setting sun. The centerpiece is a prominent, rust-colored mesa, its rugged contours enhanced by sprawling shadows and subtle highlights. The sky is a breathtaking blend of cerulean and turquoise with a chartreuse blush, accented by wispy streaks of clouds in vibrant oranges and mauve, hinting at the day's end. The interplay of light and shadow on the mesa and the surrounding terrain creates a striking contrast, emphasizing the natural grandeur and timelessness of the desert.
