It is always gratifying to find books and publications that use my work to illustrate their pages.  A new book is out published by Deseret Books titled "ELIZA-The Life and Faith of Eliza R. Snow".  Eliza was a poetess and was the writer of many Church hymns and she was able to express her feelings and beliefs with the written word.  

My painting (above) was one of four paintings that were reproduced in the book.  Eliza Snow was among the people who left Nauvoo, Illinois to begin the long trek west.  As expressive as she usually was of the experience of leaving Nauvoo she simply wrote in her journal on February 13, 1846: "Cross'd the Mississippi and join'd the Camp."

My painting is titled "Frozen Crossing" and sometimes is listed as "Final Farewell" and is being produced as a beautiful limited edition print on canvas, called a giclee and is signed and numbered.  Frozen Crossing can be purchased framed for $795 plus shipping.
