Camping and Sketching in Snow Canyon

We awoke to this glorious view of the sunrise on Snow Canyon's cliffs

A couple of days ago Nellie and I decided to do some tent camping in Snow Canyon. The weather was perfect -- sunny with cool air. We took delightful evening hike on the "Hidden Pinion Trail" and enjoyed a grand night under the Utah stars. We awoke to a glorious sunrise and I was able to do a little drawing in my travel sketchbook. Ahhh the joys of living in paradise!

St. George Art Festival Re-cap

Thanks to everyone who stopped by and visited my display at the St. George Art Festival last weekend. The weather was magnificent -- almost too hot, and the crowds were bigger than ever. We had lots of sales including originals, books, cards, and prints. I was honored by The City of St. George who purchased my painting "Springdale Morning" for the permanent collection of the St. George Art Museum. Having done a lot of outdoor art festivals in my time, I am quite sure this is the best festival of its kind. Kudos to Kent Perkins, his staff, and everyone involved for an amazing festival.

St. George Art Festival this weekend

I'll have a double booth at the St. George outdoor Art Festival Friday and Saturday April 21-22 and I hope to see YOU! Over 120 artists will be on hand at the Town Square so there will be plenty to see. For the family there is entertainment, kids' art area, food booths and more. I'll be displaying a couple of new giclee prints along with about 15 new original paintings. The weather forecast is sunny. See you there.
