High Desert Valley

I live in a valley not far from the Sierras.  The road in between home and the mountains runs along pockets of valley areas with quiet streams and openness that seems to go on and on.  I love these valley areas and the magnificent view of the mountains and the endless sky.  Thinking of a summer vacation has made for, "A Painting Day".

The texture in this one fits perfectly with the subject. Well done!

Wonderful atmosphere and depth, along with the texture.

I wonder what was the color of the first layer? So much happening in this landscape!
