Mountain Marsh Progression Painting

Mountain Marsh Progression

My son James, lives near Logan, UT and one a recent trip I took a lot of photos of the marshes there in the valley.
I know, who knew there were marshes in the dessert.

It is a stunning view.

My challenge: should I decide to accept it,
is to paint the above photo using every skill and piece of knowledge I had.
You know I can't resist a challenge!

Here's the proof!


Here's the finished product,
I think!

It's not signed yet,
but I "think" it's finished. 


  1. That is one gorgeous place! Nice job on this one, Sharon! Phew, those mountains make me cold, although I do recognize you warmed up the photo some. Great to see you painting again. Much to my dismay, the video wouldn't load...

  2. Thanks Meredith. It's the best thing I've painted in a long while.

  3. Awesome painting, Sharon! You really did a wonderful interpretation of the photo. I love your clouds and the beautiful colors used throughout the painting.

  4. Thanks Fay. I really appreciate your comment. This was a fun one because of the challenge and because I've seen it so many times with my son. Still haven't signed it yet, but I think it's done.
