Painting of the Day, December 21, 2011

By Donna Poulton

The charm in the painting Twilight Valley comes not only from the bird’s-eye-view overlooking lush central Utah farmland, but also in the small contrasts along the creek bed and the road. Brad Aldridge’s ambitious large-scale composition successfully incorporates a deep focus of the wide valley floor with graduated values drawing the eye easily along the long narrow road to the distant hills. Twilight Valley is hanging in the permanent collection of the Utah State Capitol.
