I was pleased to sell my paintings at all four venues in connection with the “In The Footsteps of Thomas Moran” plein air paint out. As the week-long event drew to a close I feel blessed that some wonderful collectors selected my paintings to add to their collections.
Ann Williams purchased my big studio painting “Virgin Beauty in Zion” at the Bingham Gallery show. Ann and her husband Bob were struck by the painting which had premier billing at the exhibit, but left without buying it. According to Ann, she just couldn’t live without it so they quickly returned to the gallery and took it home with them.
Zion National Park Superintendent Jock Whitworth bought my plein air painting of Angel’s Landing at the Z-Arts Wet Paint auction held at the Zion Lodge on Saturday evening. I am happy to call Jock a personal friend and am so pleased he chose to purchase one of my original paintings.
My painting “Watchman in Autumn” on display with Thomas Moran’s sketchbook at the Zion Human History Museum gallery was purchased by The Polanzke’s, park visitors and art collectors from Pennsylvania.
Lloyd and Nina Laycook from Kanab chose my painting “Emerald Falls” from the wet-paint sale and exhibit Friday night at the Maynard Dixon studio show. This event featured all the paintings created by the plein air invitational artists and was hosted by Paul and Susan Bingham and the Thunderbird Foundation.The exhibit and sale continues through May 26, 2009.
