I want this to be a record of my journey from architectural illustrator to fine arts painter, focusing on landscape and still life subjects. There is so much to learn, but this is more for the journey than the destination.

This is an original oil painting on canvas panel, primed and ready to be framed. It measures 11"x14". The inspiration goes to my frequency on the bike trail that parallels the Jordan River from Utah Lake north to the Great Salt Lake. It runs slowly and carries a lot of silt, so it appears quite muddy, but that's alright. Normally I ride in the hills or mountains, but when my wife comes along, we go a little slower on a paved trail.
This painting is a little different from most of my others, being more impressionistic in style.
