Finished! Red Butte Garden

So here it is.  I switched to oils. Did some veils and glazes.  I wanted the sunset version because I thought this would be more romantic.  It's for a wedding present, after all.  If you look closely on the sidewalk you'll see who it's for.  I hope they will like it and not stick it in a closet some where (could happen-one never knows).

Added bonus:  Look on the left and you'll see the actual original underpainting.  I was in a hurry and didn't have time to trim.  Kinda fun to see, though.


  1. Julie, this is the most beautiful thing I have ever seen! You are so talented! It looks just like the gardens did on our wedding day. I can't even tell you how special it is. And there is absolutely no way it would ever end up in a closet!

  2. So glad you like it! Now I need to get it framed and give it to both of you. It's 8"x10" before framing. Should fit in some place. I'm so glad you like it. I took the photo at your reception.
