Cycling Chalk Creek... A Painting

Here's the latest oil painting based on photos that were taken during a beautiful summer day spent cycling in Chalk Creek Canyon. Chalk Creek is a scenic dead-end boxed canyon that is not far from Coalville, UT. There's a creek that winds along the two lane paved road. The canyon has rolling hills with farms that grow hay and also quite a few have sheep, cows, and goats. This oil painting measures 12" X 14" and is painted on canvas board. I hope I managed to capture the sunny and beautiful day. Enjoy!

Jeanne,
I love this painting! It really captures Chalk Creek. Did you paint this in just one day or did it take you a long time? You are an amazing artist! Oh, to have talent...

Thanks Gal! I painted in two different sittings about a total of 4 hours all together. That's the back of Sofia.

I love your artwork--and I am so glad I came across your website. I am especially partial to your cycling artwork--it really captures the joy of cycling! Have you ever exhibited for the Gallery Stroll in Salt Lake?
I just love the Halloween art piece since we just did some fun Halloween photos on my website (www.cycleandstyle.com) Gateway on a winter night is another favorite!
