Watchtower at Sunset

Watchtower at Sunset

18" x 24"
Oil on hardwood Panel

I love painting scenes which involve snow.

However this painting came from thinking about the watchtowers of life. There are many and I am grateful for them.

The Savior, His restored Church, the temple, the scriptures and those called as watchmen.

Our precious children, Lori and good neighbors and friends

They are all nearby and we can chose to let them be an important part of our life with a lasting impact

So this is a very prominent watchtower near a modest family home. The setting is beautiful but also vulnerable

It seems an appropriate painting for Father's Day

The palette here is limited with an emphasis on warm and cool variations.
