"Capitol Reef Stormy Day", 8 x 10 In, Oil on Museum Board
I expected to go to Utah and find cloudless skies. Instead a storm swirled around Capitol Reef and Canyonlands National Parks the entire week! No drizzle, like the Northwest, but black clouds followed by cerulean skies. On this first painting, the wind was fierce and my umbrella snapped in half, but oh well--minutes later the sun was shining. But you can tell--it was a fast painting!
