Last year we went on a cross country road trip. I loved it.  We drove through Grand Teton National Park on our way to our hotel in Jackson, Wyoming. The […]

  London is a really neat place. One thing i loved about it was the ancient buildings next to the contemporary buildings.  There is so much beautiful architecture. I love some of the Iconic buildings, like the Houses of Parliament, or the Tower Bridge, which we see part of in the painting. One day while […]

I love moody overcast sky and rain.  The rain amplifies color, and the sky has such amazing shapes and colors.  Weather has always inspired me. This latest painting of my series about Britain is of a village nestled in the hills in sheep country.  The homes are centuries old, and beautiful. This village is composed […]

On our trip to England we had the chance to visit one of the worlds oldest universities, Oxford. It was a pretty place full of buildings built in the local Cotswold Oolitic Limestone. (For those of you familiar with the Manti LDS Temple, It is also yellow Oolitic Limestone.)  There were many interesting buildings, and […]

I really enjoyed visiting England.  One of my favorite parts was visiting some sites in the countryside.  I loved seeing the ancient architecture, and the beautiful farmland.  Here is a small painting of a scene in the Cotswolds, a scenic sheep raising area in south central England. It is a great example of Atmospheric perspective, […]
