I hit a monumental birth year a while ago and to celebrate the occasion, my daughter and I took flight in a hot air balloon! It was an incredible experience. We rose before the sun that morning and met our group in a lot, where we helped to fill the balloons with hot air. After climbing into the basket with our captain and a few other folks, we ascended.  I loved the slow rise above the mountains of Park City, Utah, drifting along with the wind.  I find the view from above to be so calming and peaceful, inspiring me to paint from that perspective.  All of my Elevation  paintings are taken from photos and are real places on the planet. Oil painting on metal of blush colored mountain tops and blue horizon.

I love to travel and this past March I went in search of the Northern Lights. Iceland was an amazing, desolate, and most extreme climate which I have ever experienced. I understand how a person could die from exposure now. It was however, spectacularly beautiful, changeable and the light had this incredible blue cast, reflecting off the snow. This snow covered peak, with icy silver swirls over looks a frozen landscape with soft, blurred mountains on the horizon line.

I am blessed to be able to live near the Wasatch and Uinta Mountain Ranges. Every night is different but those seen in the full of the moon are particularly mysterious.
