Original Watercolor and Ink Painting Landscape Utah Mountain

This landscape painting is my impression and memories of Utah and driving through Zion. This area is one of nature's wonders...  

As a painter I can only capture a brief moment or glimpse of what nature has done.  While a passenger in a car I wanted to soak up everything so I took photographs.  The camera almost became a barrier; I stopped taking photos so I could soak up all the beauty. 

My camera has always been great for references but sometimes it just nice to be in the moment.  I’m sure I’ll be painting more of these Utah memories.

  1. I LOVE this. So makes me want to go there. And you are right about cameras. I was almost beaned by a baseball once because I was photographing the game. Once that ball was out of frame, it ceased to exist for me.
