Art Notes

On a trip to Salt Lake City many years ago I was enamored with the lingering effects of dusk on the distant mountains and the way in which the lights of the city began to twinkle as the shadows of the mountains enveloped the skyline. I decided then and there to attempt to capture the city when the timing was right. And now the timing is perfect!

As I worked on Salt Lake: City of Lights, I constantly balanced the desire to infuse the historic details of the city (for example the towering capitol building at the far left and the famous tabernacle and temple of the Mormon Church in the right middle) with touches of the newer buildings and skyline. Here truly is a historic city that shines like a jewel in the desert.
