Rick Shorten, Local Orem Artist

This snowy evening I ventured out with my friends, Kennedy and Virginia, to visit an open house at Rick Shorten’s home.  Kennedy had shown me some of his work and I liked it.  We went to see what he’s been working on.  His home is about 5 minutes from ours, here in Orem.

It was really fun to meet Rick and look at his work, filled with faces and feelings.  I loved the way he brings two worlds together–here and There.  We are surrounded by family and loved ones on both sides of the veil, and I felt that in his work.

These are the two pieces I settled on.  I couldn’t choose just one:  Mary and Joseph with young boy Jesus, and a woman like me, surrounded by angelic loved ones.  I took them home with me and will love them in our home.

This is Rick in his home studio.   It was a delight to meet him here tonight.
