I’m just finishing my watercolor and drawing classes at the University of Utah. My teachers Diana Gardiner and Susan Beck have been amazing. This painting was made from a photograph I took at the Garden Park LDS Church meetinghouse in Salt Lake City. A beautiful little stream flows through the property which used to be a mansion and was later given to the Church. I’ve hosted several Halloween carnivals for children at church and thought it would be a good setting for a book about creating Halloween fun I set a pumpkin on an old brick wall and took the picture. The photo will be the cover for my Halloween book that is almost ready to go out.
