We just got back from spending several weeks traveling along US Route 89. We did the section from Salt Lake City south. What a beautiful state. What nice people. What a great way to travel. We went slowly south, finding all kinds of hidden treasures along the road.
This painting is the result of another trip to Utah. This time, we camped at Snow Canyon, close to St. George. There was a rain storm and then these puddles appeared with reflections of the nearby cliffs in them. An optical illusion was created, making it appear that the puddles were actually openings in the road. I had great fun trying to capture this.
By the way, if you are an artist and would like to subscribe to a really useful website on marketing your art, I highly recommend Alyson Stanfield. She has a great weekly newsletter you can subscribe to. I've gotten all kinds of useful advice!
