Justin Taylor, challenged me to paint only with vertical strokes. So hard! But I ended up really enjoying it. I'll definitely be experimenting a bit more with that idea. If you click on both of these you can see the brush strokes better. Which is personally my favorite part.
Peter Sakievich. All three of us painted the same scene, but we each came up with such different paintings. I guess that's one reason I love painting so much—its so open to exploration and interpretation.

Jake Wyatt got me all excited about it and we did a bunch of paintings while we were there and have done a few together since we've been back—I think the bottom one was done on one of our painting adventures here in Provo. The train one was done when I was out painting with some good friends, Mary Summerhays and Sallie Poet.

So I went on a trip with a grant-sponsored art group from BYU. It was amazing. Doing art was fun, but feeling the wind rushing through the Grand Canyon, hiking into the canyon to see the sun rise, throwing ourselves off the side of sand dunes and laughing with good friends is really what made this trip all that it was. Here are a couple of sketches that I did on the trip. The first is in marker and colored pencil (ironically, the exact colors that I needed were the only 5 colors that I had on my unprepared self), the second was in pastels borrowed from Jake and the third is just a photograph of the canyon. I'm working on another finished piece for a show going up. To be posted later :)

For this one we had to illustrate a family saying. Growing up, every time that we would leave the house my mom would give us a hug and a kiss and say, 'Have a great adventure!' as we walked out the door. Thanks, Mom. Life has been a wonderful adventure so far. :)
