If it were August, wouldn't it be fun to get some inner tubes from the garage and go to the river and jump in, get on the tubes and take a couple of hours to go to the lake where a good friend is waiting in his car to take us back to the start and he would get his turn. This is the Jordan River in Utah, and the lake is shallow and the river is WARM. I guess I'll just paint it this year.
A few will notice that I lost all my posts a week or ten days ago. Not sure what I did, or maybe it wasn't me, can't be sure. Now I've learned to back up the photos and comments in one part of the saving process and save the template, even though I can get a new one into shape pretty quickly. So, all you bloggers, save your work. my blog was only a month old, but think if someone had five or six years of work into it. It would be like a computer without a back-up. Oh, wait. It WOULD be a computer without a back-up.
I always enjoy the time of year when the leaves turn colours and you see the little kids dressed in their new school clothes getting dropped off by their parents. I've been both the little kid, and the parent so that makes me an expert. The world returns to order and the cosmos is as it should be. Oh how we longed for September when we had a bunch of little guys, but the days go by quickly and we have photos and memories to get us through.

In case you don't recognize the subject of the painting, it's an old ice box that people used just before refrigerators made their entry into the homes of almost everyone. A block of ice went into the top of the box, and water was collected at the bottom. The food went in the door.
This painting is a little different from most of my others, being more impressionistic in style.

This is a 9"x12" acrylic painting on gessoed hardboard and is framed in a neutral hardwood frame which I made with my framing equipment in my garage, sealed with a dust cover on the back, and wire to hang it. I will sell without the frame, but it's nice and if interested, I will send a picture of the painting in the frame. There is a bike trail going from Draper, Point of the Mountain, up a ways then turns and comes out in Highland. I walked part-way in and found this discarded piece of old water management technology. Just had to paint it.

This oil painting on hardboard shows a picturesque working farm in the central high valleys of Utah. There are no big cities here. Several towns dot the landscape, and almost every one is built around small business and farm supply and equipment retailers. This painting is framed in a most cool manner, and may be purchased framed or unframed on Daily Paintworks.com.
