Monument Valley *
This picture is a view from one of the many little caves in the Red Rock region of the southwest area of the United States. I traveled in this Red Rock country as part of my engineering services. As the myriad of differing landscapes of climate and time of day were occurring, I remember many times feeling completely overwhelmed by the views; including the reflection of clouds, sunrises and sunsets. Even the smells of rain, snow, sagebrush and conifers have opened up places in my heart that have expanded my understanding of true happiness. I am so very thankful that I am able to try to express these experiences in some of my paintings.
