The dawn of a new era

24"x36" Acrylic on canvas, framed



My dad was born and raised in Fairview, Wyoming in the southwest portion of Star Valley. It was almost unbelievable to me when the announcement was made that a new LDS temple would soon be erected there.

I have been monitoring the construction for awhile now, contemplating how I could put my feelings about it on canvas. This scene is what I came up with ... my dad as a young man on his horse at dawn marveling at the newly constructed temple ... the dawn of a new era in Star Valley.

I have been asked to submit it to the LDS Church's International Art Competition this year. I am flattered by the invitation … we'll see if I have the courage to do so.

Hope you enjoy ...
