Gila River Valley by WhiteDove Studio kj gordon


Small (16.3" x 23.2")

Available to buy on…

The central portion of the Gila River flows on the southern Phoenix Valley region-(where Phoenix, in the Salt River Valley joins the Gila River Valley) Located just a few miles down I-10 from our Arizona home
After the rain the desert is crisp and clean………
the The Saguaro, pronounced “sah-wah-roh” Cactus soaks up the moisture like a sponge
I didn’t have my camera with me so I took this photo with my eye and recreated it with acrylic paint ……………

    I just love the rich colors of the floor of the valley, and the way is moves into the distant hills KJ. This is such a quiet, soothing piece. Love it!

  • this time of the day the desert is hush………so quiet………especially away from the hustle and bustle of the big city…….
