"Calving Morning Sunrise" is a collection of oil paintings reflecting the time of year called "Calving Season" in the San Luis Valley and on the Eastern Plains. Rancher friends have shared with me their response while watching the sunrise as they attend to cows waiting for the calves to birth. And I have waited in the cold watching the same sunrise on the plains and in the San Luis Valley.
I share this time of day to remind Ranchers and Farmers of that amazing time of day, as they are feeding cattle or working in the fields, when the light changes so rapidly, silently and spectacularly showing the magnificence of this planet with amazing colors in the Western Sky. Only in the Western landscape does the sky offer up such views of our planet.
Sometimes, I weep from the beauty. I share my contemplation.
