This painting is a plein air painting of Utah Valley University. â€œPlein Airâ€ is a method of painting that the impressionists invented, which meant that you painted on the spot, outside. If you look at the top right, thereâ€™s a little friend who decided to stick around in the paintingâ€”thatâ€™s what happens when you paint outside! This painting depicts my favorite courtyard at Utah Valley University, where I have many fond memories. Utah Valley University has helped me to grow as a person, a leader, and a communicator.
