Nothing Gold Can Stay. April 2020.


Big Bend National Park.

Inspired by fleeting moments of light; Bathing in sunshine one moment, pelted by rain the next. Named after Robert Frost's poem:

Nature’s first green is gold,

Her hardest hue to hold.

Her early leaf’s a flower;

But only so an hour.

Then leaf subsides to leaf.

So Eden sank to grief,

So dawn goes down to day.

Nothing gold can stay.


Original painting is oil on canvas. Original is 22 inches x 28 inches.


Fine art giclee reproduction. The reproduction image intentionally captures the original raised texture of the canvas, but is actually printed on velvety smooth matte paper. The effect is a more original-looking print. Features only archival inks on 100% cotton rag archival Moab white paper.
