New Miniature Painting Completed
"Edna Valley Vineyard" just completed in time for the San Dimas Festival of Arts. This miniature is just 6" by 8" unframed (12.5 by 12.5 framed). The high clouds allow the sun to cast shadows between the rows of grapes as they ripen slowly. The rugged native vegetation highlights the cultivated vineyards.
Another mini oil on canvas just in time for San Dimas!. This is the Taylor trail in Zion National Park, off the Kolob exit from the Interstate 15 highway . It is late afternoon. The sun filters through the trees, creating patterns of light and shadow on the stream and trail. 6" by 8" (framed 12.5" by 12.5")
Between Heaven and Earth
This painting pays homage to my roots in Southern Utah. Although I did not grow up here my family spent many vacations in the area. We are related to half the population in Santa Clara and St. George, Utah. There is beauty wherever you look in this area, despite it being "the desert". It is known as Utah's Dixie, because of the relatively mild winters and very hot summers. One stands in awe as one gazes on the majestic mountains and lush foliage of spring. There is water in the rivulet and cooling shade along side. This place is on the road to Zion, hidden from the road, so one has to get out of the car and wander a little to find it. With the red hills and green plants it is Christmas year around in Dixie.
