Cabins & Landscapes Yosemite Valley Driving the old Yosemite Valley ring road, I found myself in a familiar spot. I brought my paint and canvas onto that inspiring boulder, and, in little more than an hour of feverish, inspired work created Yosemite Valley. A powerful insight struck me as I carried the canvas to my car: these mountains are nothing less than an image of God���s grace. So returning to my studio, I used my Yosemite Valley study as a foundation for a major studio composition, The Mountains Declare His Glory. Yosemite Valley | 2000 Study for The Mountains Declare His Glory Image Size 16" x 20" The Mountains Declare His Glory After completing my recent plein air study of Yosemite Valley, the mountains��� majesty refused to leave me. I began to imagine how it might feel to live in perfect harmony with such grandeur, to be literally a part of the valley. As a final touch, I even added a Miwok Indian camp along the river as an affirmation that man has his place, even in a setting touched by God���s glory.
