My husband’s mom and dad recently took a road trip. For Christmas, I painted a few of the photos they took on their trip and framed them as a suite.

Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado

Delicate Arch, Arches National Park, Utah

Fort Stockton, Texas

This last one is a quick painting I just finished based on a photo taken in Monkton, Maryland by my friend Jonathan Fell. It’s not part of the series, but I thought it made sense here.

This spring, my husband and I will be taking a road trip of our own, and I hope to do a lot more landscape painting from life and from my own photos.
