The Artists Sketchbook
This drawing of my daughter Jenny, is just one of those drawings that I try to do once in a while, that helps sharpen and maintain my skills. She is also the only one out of my children so far who I've been able to get to sit for a portrait from life. All the rest say, take a picture. Arrg!! They're missing the point. I'm trying to not work from the easily delineated frozen image of a photograph, but rather from life. It is much more challenging, but much more rewarding and satisfying.

"Cedars and Sage (Coyote Hill)" Oil on Muslin on Panel 11" X 14" 2010
Marilynn and I participated in the Spring City Arts, plein air competition this past weekend in Central Utah. This painting received "best of show" honors at the event. Win or not, I love these events, but it's an affliction I'm glad I have. This image was painted as an after thought with just 3 hours left in the competition. I wasn't happy with the image I started the day before, so I turned it on its side and cranked this one out. The paint was about 30 minutes old when I turned it in.

I found this image in the area of Walsburg, one of Utah's beautiful mountain valleys. The east side of the Wasatch Front is what is seen in the background.
