Robert Redford once said, "Everyone in Hollywood has their therapists. I have Utah!"
Bob has it right. I've been spending time in Utah every summer for the last 50+ years of my life. I went to school at BYU in Utah. My parents both grew up in Park City, Utah. It is a glorious place. One of the fringe benefits of marrying my wife is their family cabin just behind Redford's Sundance Resort.
This photo shows an example of the therapy that Redford spoke of:
(Our cabin is a couple hundred yards behind me as I take this photo.)
Most years I don't spend very much time painting while there and spend time with my family. But since I have that Sonoma Plein Air thing coming, I decided I would try to paint a few pictures.
