Uintahs, 1970

36x48, acrylic on canvas

Marge and I took a trip to Moon Lake in the Uintah mountains. The trees were bent due to the weight of many winter snow seasons. I took a photograph of a closed landscape (one without sky). I used the photo to paint this picture in the living room of our apartment. The apartment was on Third Avenue of Salt Lake City. The painting hung above our couch for many years.

It was damaged to the point that I destroyed it. I was sad to see it go.

Closed landscapes are always intriguing to me--not the easiest to do.
