I'm disappointed in the quality of this photo. It doesn't show the subtle variation of the greens in the foliage. For some reason (probably my amateurish skills with a camera) the photo over-emphasized the lighter details of the painting as well.) (15' X 22") $100.00

The reason I called it the lost road is because I was a bit turned-around. Okay, I was lost. The road runs along the Strawberry River. River is a misnomer since this river is little more than a brook. The area is starkly beautiful; I'd like to return someday and take more photos. NFS

The Mt Nebo Scenic Loop provides a spectacular fall excursion. You can exit I-15 at Nephi, Utah if your driving north. Your trip time will be about 90 minutes (unless you just can't stop taking photos) before you end up in Payson, Utah. (22" x 15") No longer in my collection.

Where eagles dare ( and 15 year old girls had better not). Our daughter was frightened by an eagle late one afternoon when we visited this spot. The eagle flew up over the precipice just as she reached the edge of the overlook. Our laughter at the incident didn't help the situation, and she (not the eagle) came running back ready to punch our lights.

No, it obviously isn't Modena, Italy but rather a tiny railroad-stop town near the Utah/Nevada border. I'd estimate that about 25 people live there (maybe). Anyway, I've often seen similar cloud formations converge over this expansive valley. (15" x 22") No longer in my collection.

This is my grandson Micah. He lives in North Carolina. Recently, he entered an art contest sponsored by the PTA. He was in the pre-kindergarten through second grade division. From a total of 52 schools, he placed third in his division. (The fire breathing dragon is his masterpiece.) In addition to that, he was awarded best of show by a co-sponsor:Art Quest, and was given a free summer pass to Art Quest's summer activities. CONGRATULATIONS MICAH!!!!!!
Several years ago our family would make the annual trek to Brianhead, Utah. This small lake was along a path we hiked. Whenever I look at the painting, I recall hearing the rock chucks chirping at us for intruding on their solitude. This painting is one of my all time favorites. (22" x 15") NFS

I mainly use Daniel Smith Watercolors, although I have other brands in my paint box. My two most used colors are (French) ultramarine blue and burnt sienna. I frequently use cobalt blue, quinacridone gold (a wonderful color,) yellow ochre, new gamboge, hansa yellow, sap and hookers greens, and alizarin crimson. I like earth colors because I paint a lot of rockscapes. hills, and mountains. I'm a sucker for a new color and will try it at least once. (15" x 22") $75.00
