plein air, oil, 6x8, 'Growth Spurt'
This painting was completed for the 2016 Wasatch Plein Air Paradise in Midway, Utah. I found this scenic view of the Heber Valley at the Midway Cemetery seeking shade and a place to have lunch. The temperatures were in the high 90's just 6 days before the 4th of July. I was so shocked to see the growth of Midway from a sleepy quiet rural hideaway just a few years ago.
