Best of Show at Big Four Arts Festival
I was honored to receive Best of show for 2018 for my oil paintings in the Big Four Bridges Art Festival in Louisville, Kentucky on September 9th, 2018. It was an honor that was much appreciated. The directors of the show worked hard to make everyone's experience the best possible. A big THANK YOU to them and all who participated.
Walking along the Taylor trail of Zion National Park in late afternoon, the sun lights up the fallen leaves and red sand and causes them to glow. The small stream reflects the blue of the sky. A recent storm has left the sand damp and it appears in places to be a deeper red. Such beauty in this small area brings a sense of tranquility and joy reverberating within. Fall Color is 5" by 7".
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.
