What a Week in Utah!

"Lickety Split"
Oil on Linen
30" x 15"

And I just thought we were going Skiing!!!

What started out to be a week to ski Brighton and Solitude ended up landing me my first Gallery out West. On the off chance I might have an opportunity, I painted “ Lickety Split” on flat linen, rolled it up and stuck it in my suite case with the hope it would not be coming back home with me.

My wish came true and it is currently being framed to hang in Mountain Trails Gallery in Park City Utah. I will also be shipping several other works out there this week!

Beautiful painting, and great idea to roll up a painting and take it in your suitcase when you go on vacation!
