I'll Be by catch---22 I'll Be by catch---22
The strands in your eyes that color them wonderful
Stop me and steal my breath.
And emeralds from mountains thrust towards the sky
Never revealing their depth.

Tell me that we belong together,
Dress it up with the trappings of love.
I'll be captivated.
I'll hang from your lips.

I'll be the greatest fan of your life...

Greetings! I am interested in this locale as I recently found an oil painting by M. Gunterman (circa 1950's) and I'd like to find out more about the artist and this iconic location.Could you tell me about it, the Wichita Mountains ?

Thank you... definitely on my three-day-get-away bucket list. Maybe there was a reason I got that painting from a thrift store for the price of the frame .....it is amazingly beautiful and your work does it much more than justice.

well thank you and for the favs as well. Medicine Park is near the refuge and worth a stop when in the area. "meers" is also a decent burger in a cool place.

Nice shot. Looks like an HDR effect so I'm wondering if GIMP does stuff like that?

hmmm I'm not sure. I usually use gimp just for the borders. I did this one in photomatix.
