Death Valley Gold Mine

This picture illustrates a divine truth found in Chapter 14 of my inspirational book, THE GREATEST MOMENT.

The painting is word picture about Death Valley, which is my lead-in to the chapter about hidden treasure in the Cross. Like undiscovered gold, ‘life” can be found in the most unexpected places. We normally associate Death Valley with death and loss. We often do the same with Calvary, but there are living treasures to be discovered there. Life is one of them. Aspects of life are hidden in the barrenness of Death Valley. Something similar can be said for the Cross.

As for the painting, my second, I’m learning how to blend warm and cool colors to create depth. Notice the shovel stuck into the ground, next to the pick. And no, those are not watermelons, they’re barrel cactus.
