What’s not to like? A week in the Uintah Mountains painting watercolors with good friends. It was a chance to really concentrate and get some painting done. The painting was interrupted only to eat some fine food and take a walk in the fresh mountain air. There was artistic synergism in the air. Paint was flying from palette to paper.
It was time to paint the little woman I met on the road through Zion National Park last November. We drove around a corner and there she was. I knew immediately I wanted to paint her.
She was overcome by the beauty and spirit of the place and trying to capture it with her camera. She had lived in New Jersey and had now moved to Israel. Her eyes filled with tears as she talked about the beauty of this place. I felt an immediate connection as her soul felt the same love for the place that I did. How do you capture those majestic sandstone cliffs and the feeling she had as she looked at them. “Epiphany on the Road to Zion” is my attempt.
