Valley of Fire

Valley of Fire, collagescape, mixed media on board, 12”x12”

I was inspired by Valley of Fire State Park in Nevada before I even knew where it was. It’s a place I saw in dreams for months prior to my first visit.  It’s a lightly visited state park about 90 minutes north of Las Vegas.  It’s a magical place.

I’ve painted the park a few times and included it in the 2011 Project as well.  Now it’s time for a collagescape, a very orange piece like the park’s dramatic rock formations.  It almost looks like it is– on fire! Valley of Fire can be seen in my Collagescape exhibit opening in August.
