Stories Behind the Paintings

Salt Lake City 1893

“This painting started out as a commission piece and all my client asked me to do was a historical piece of early Salt Lake City and for it to be somewhere from the North East side with a view of the Salt Lake Temple. As we got further along into the painting discussion he also asked if there could be some, what he said, “Tall, skinny trees,” that they used to have. Those trees were lombardy poplars, which I absolutely love and was excited about that. He also asked if I could do it in the fall. Everything else came after that.”

“What I normally do when I very first start a painting for a client is do a couple of sketches as I’m gathering my ideas. I do a really rough one on my idea and then a more tightened up sketch for my client to look at that will look pretty close to what the painting will end up being. ”
