Never Leave Home Without It

 I'm Not Talking About A Credit Card

What should you never leave home without?

You're camera, silly!
These were some photos I took near my son's home in Utah.

They will be used as painting reference in the future and I thought you'd like to see a few of the many I took.

 This is at a bird preserve near Tremonton, UT.

The birds on the water were splashing and squawking like crazy.

This old building is abandoned but its beauty continues to shine through.
At least to me.
That window on the right side of the building might have been the first drive through in America.

Everything about this building screams,
Paint Me!!!!

I'm sure they will all get their wish in the near future.

Thanks for stopping by today.


  1. Can't wait to see what you do with these photos!

    1. Just got back home and back on the internet. Thank you so much for the comment. Hopefully able to get into the studio this next week and work.

  2. Sharon, you're right about always having a camera with you. Much of the time I rely on my i-phone. I see great inspiration in these photos, and am looking forward to seeing what you do next.

    1. Don't have a smart phone but my iPad works great as does my camera. I seldom paint something to look photographical but I do need the reference.
