The Hidden Valley by Nancy Glazier



The Hidden Valley by Nancy Glazier ~ The American Bison, commonly called a buffalo, is one of Glaziers favorite subjects. Glazier paints them grazing at dawn just as the sun peeps over a hill and lights part of the valley floor. Sunlight plays off the steam rising from the buffalo in the chill of early morning. The deep valley, surrounding hills and virtually no sky give the painting an unusual feel one of total seclusion and peace. When the artist completed the painting and was driving through Nevada to ship it to the publisher, she and her husband were trying to settle on a name. Just as they reached the top of a hill, her husband suggested The Hidden Valley. And suddenly, they saw a sign for the next exit from the highway. It was the Hidden Valley exit. And so the title was decided.
