Home and Finished Sketches

It is June, but I have finally finished the sketchbook from the Great Southwest Road Trip. Just in time for my next adventure… Instead of writing much, I will let my sketchbook pages speak for themselves, beginning with the first and leaving out the ones I have previously posted. I hope you enjoy them.

Here is where we were when I left off last, in Beaver, Utah. From there we traveled to the beautiful Salt Lake City where we heard the magnificent Morman Tabernacle Choir broadcast their 4,624th program of “Music and the Spoken Word.” They have been broadcasting every week since 1929! Amazing. We heard them several years ago on our trip to Yellowstone so we planned this trip to be there on a Sunday. Well worth it (and free). There were so many flowers blooming around Temple Square I could only take pictures to paint later.

Then we drove out to the Great Salt Lake, and, yes, that is a bison on the beach… and someone had built a labyrinth.

And home sweet home. It was so good to see green trees, green grass, the ocean. I didn’t realize how much I missed it all until there wasn’t any. It was a great trip, but we should have done it 20 years ago. Traveling is hard. That being said, stay tuned for the Sweet Street Sketchers coming to you from Paris in September…
