For Sale: “Palo Duro Winds” Original Oil on board by Veryl Goodnight
Wednesday June 13, 2018
The owner of this remarkably work has asked me to entertain offers for the original. If you want to discuss, please call me at 817-992-8220 or email me at Cecil@buffalogold.net.
Set against the backdrop of the Palo Duro Canyon of West Texas, the herd family portrays what the artist feels was both the majesty of the big herds and the sadness of their passing.
The colors are slightly muted with the exception of the bison, so their power and strength get captured by both the musculature – Veryl’s specialty – and dominance.
This painting – Palo Duro Winds original – was first shown at the 2013 “Quest for the West” invitational western artists gathering at the Eiteljorg Museum, Indianapolis, Indiana. There, it qualified for sale (not something all the works are allowed to do) and went to this collector.
More recently, it was displayed at the “Cowgirl Hall of Fame” in Ft. Worth Texas when Veryl Goodnight was inducted into that prestigious organization.
Perfectly framed for most all environs, so as not to overshadow the work, but so as to draw attention to the subject. The framing was selected by Veryl’s husband, Roger Brooks.
