Description of Cornu’s Haven
I recently met some new friends and discovered that we were actually in Queenstown, New Zealand last year at the same time, in the same hotel, just a couple of rooms away from each other! Michael and Sarah own a wonderful property along the Upper Weber River here in the Wasatch Back Mountains of Utah and have recently invited me to fish that stretch of river a couple of times. In fact, just a couple of weeks ago, Michael and I ran across some fresh mountain lion tracks in the snow right in this very spot … made me be a little extra alert that day!
In honor of their kindness and generosity, I painted this little piece for their home. Since I love the fall of the year, I painted it all lit up in autumn colors. I really wanted to convey the softness and peaceful nature of the experience there. Thank you, Michael and Sarah!
