Woke up this morning to pouring rain. I wanted to go for a run but didn't want to be washed away so I painted instead. I completed two small (7"x10") paintings. I have a stack a mile high of photos taken over the years of landscapes I would like to do and today was the day to start. One is of Yellowstone and the other one is of Farmington Bay on the Great Salt Lake. I am now hooked on doing these small paintings and might start another one before the day is over.
My daughter and I then went to Mattick's Farm to get out of the house and browse through all the little gift shops there. At the Gallery, we came across these beautiful books designed and made by a Vancouver artist, Charles van Sandwyck. The paintings in the books are just little gems. What an inspiration.
