Above Old Rag
This wonderful painting give you the feeling that you are there, looking down at Old Rag while taking a rest along your hike. Your view takes in the mountains in the foreground, and Old Rag beyond, showing its bald peak. The vast horizon stretches out beyond. Cabrera has a remarkable ability to show dimension and scale in his works using light and shadows.
