West Texas is known for its dark skies and the stars.  Sit out in a lawn chair in the Chihuahuan desert any night, any time of year and you won't forget the experience.  The desert is alive and the skies are filled with sparkling clusters of light.  You can even see the Milky Way!  If you happen to be here when the moon is out, it casts a beautiful glow on the shrubby desert plants.  This painting tells the story of moonlight on the plants.
