I am posting a few of my father's watercolors this week without addressing any of Trump's many disasters. I am exasperated and momentarily paralyzed by the incompetence and contempt. (I also have two briefs coming due early next week.)
While I appreciate the distinct seasons in Northern Utah, I don't much care for the colder temperatures and shorter days. But the long light, contrast and colors presented my dad with ideal conditions for painting.
