Artist Roland Lee with pioneer paintings of Nauvoo and Kirtland

Last Monday I was invited by my brother Grant Lee to come to his home in Meridian Idaho to present a display and discussion of my pioneer paintings. About 30 interested people attended as I talked about my own family history and how my paintings reflected that history. The paintings included images of Kirtland, Ohio and Nauvoo, Illinois, where my own pioneer ancestors lived before coming west with the Mormon Pioneers. They eventually ended up in southern Utah where I now live and Roland Lee, Grant Lee, and Andrea Lee Conley at the gravesite of Blaine Nelson Lee Sr. in Emmett Idahohave my studio. Both my brother Grant and my older sister Andrea Conley took part sharing pioneer stories. On Tuesday we all went up to Emmett, Idaho and visited my father’s gravesite. It was a choice experience to be together as a family and strengthen each other following the loss of our brother Blaine last week.

    They’re all very lovely. I especially like the one in the upper right… the one of the St. George temple with the red rock mountains in the background. Striking. It’s St. George at it’s best, isn’t it? I always look forward to going to that particular temple visitor’s center when we come in the summer to visit family.
