This painting was inspired by late dusk on a trip through Raton taken by artist Gary Oakley, New Mexico. He painted the evening light a passionate deep blue and indicated a bit of moonlight hitting the clouds creating a distinctive golden glow on the foreground. This painting represents one of the many supernatural displays in New Mexico. It is finished with retouch varnish but it is not glossy which allows viewer to see the depth in the layers of paint. The blue is mystical and spiritual. It is ready to hang.

Signature: signed on front
