Treasures in Cardboard

“Red Poppy Trailhead” 58”x23” Watercolor with varnished finish.

When we left for our mission to Hawaii, I had a couple of paintings at a show down in St. George. My daughter picked them up when the show was over. They leaned against the wall in my studio. We returned to our home in the middle of covid and we were still teaching some online classes for BYU Hawaii so I never unboxed the paintings. I couldn’t remember which painting was in the big cardboard box. Like meeting an old friend after a long parting, this painting emerged from hiding. We put it up above our fireplace. One of the fun things about creating paintings is that there is a variety of paintings to display In your home while they are waiting for just the right buyer.

It’s also fun to see paintings and prints find a new home. As artists we create to share our love for the beauties in this world and how we see them. It is nice that they can bring joy to others. Sometimes they send me pictures to show me how they’ve framed them. Thanks to Kris for finding a new home for the giclee print “On The Road To Emmaus.” Here’s a picture of how it’s looking.
