My daughter's friend, Megan and her family overlook this beautiful valley outside Salt Lake City. It was just before sunset, and the light was perfect for a painting. I knew that by the time I set up my paints it would be too late, so I snapped some photos instead.
Here is the result painted from my laptop a few days later while in Idaho. There are some aspects of the painting I like, but I didn't capture the afternoon light the way I would have liked. Maybe I'll paint it again sometime from a photo. Sure wish I had had a few hours on site with my oils! Tomorrow morning we leave for the drive home.
