It is a great example of Atmospheric perspective, […]

Temples are important sacred buildings. I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latterday Saints. We have temples all over the world. In these temples we have marriages that we believe are for eternity. We can be sealed to family members that have passed on, and other sacred things. Temples are also […]

As is obvious by looking at my paintings, I love waterfalls. This summer we took a road trip out west and visited 7 national parks. One of my favorites was Yellowstone. We saw lots of geysers, wildlife, and tourists. Yellowstone falls from Artist’s Point was my favorite thing we saw. I have been doing a […]
