Oil on canvas, Image: 16"h x 20"w, Frame: 19.25"h x 23.25"w, Item No. 21777,


In this vivid landscape, Kathryn Stedham captures the serene, luminous beauty of the red cliffs of Ghost Ranch, their contours etched in hues of cadmium, amber, and ochre with lilac shadows. A full moon hangs over the horizon, suspended in the golden twilight sky. A riparian plain fills the foreground, its pale green expanse divided by a sinuous river, the water’s surface glowing brightly in the dying light. Silhouettes of hardy flora stand sentinel along the curving banks, their dark forms contrasting against the ethereal backdrop. ‘Pale Moonlight, Ghost Ranch’ invites contemplation and engenders awe, embodying tranquil majesty and the timeless beauty of the natural world.
