Orange Valley

"Orange Valley" 6x6, oil on cradled panel, ©Laura Gable
The Monument Valley region of Arizona is one of my favorite places to visit. Though I've been there in person many years ago, this is the first painting that I've done based on the memory of the place. The sunset was catching the tops of the foremost bushes causing them to almost glow from within -- like the soulful person who has a deep inner glow. It was truly a golden hour.

Into the canyons and buttes of old,
we travel with misty eyes
Our heartbeats follow this ancient rhythm
of drum beats rising from the center of the earth.

(This is painted on a 3/4" deep art panel).
