Rennes Valley Sunset And Shadow
Painting - Acrylic On Paper
Rennes Valley Sunset and Shadow [Peace and Premonition] is a Soul of France painting from the Magda or Magdalen series by Dawn Richerson. They had traversed many miles since the mountaintop treachery, and he had walked beside her, determined to see her safely home. She wanted to go further, to the turn in the river where she had left the boy, but the sun sank swiftly and he urged her to be with its beauty.
And so they stood in reverent admiration of a golden sun and all the love that rose up from the darkest of days. She did not tell him that day of the shadows she saw in the sky, though on the next and all the days that followed he would stand beside her, the river of blood forever uniting them but creating a chasm she never fully crossed in that life.
The golden sun disappeared and they became one with the mountain that night. And for that one moment, there were only stars and a blanket of peace that brought her comfort and joy.
This painting is of the Rennes Valley, Aude, Languedoc, France, and is inspired by a soul memory that came clear to me in early December 2016 on my second visit to France. It is one that continues to bring me deep peace. This is a painting of what I know by heart—soul memories from the life of Mary Magdalen.
