3 20″x 20″ oil on canvas
Last autumn after painting several aspen paintings for 30 Paintings in 30 Days, when the leaves all around me were turning that gorgeous golden hue, I embarked on this trio of paintings just for fun. I wanted them to be displayed as all three or just two or even one.
Just in the beginning stages I set these paintings aside to work on two commissions, and they sat for several months propped against a wall in our little guest house. Last week we had a guest who totally fell in love with this trio of paintings and paid me for them. So this last week I’ve been finishing them up for her.
As I was working on the center painting the song “Be Thou My Vision” came up on my Pandora channel, and the words “may I reach heaven’s joys”, just seemed to describe so perfectly this painting, hence the title.
Hope you enjoy these paintings and the little story behind them.

Sweet story, love how the title came to be! So joyful, in every configuration!
Thank you, Sheila. 🙂
Beautiful paintings, and beautiful title. And what a great way to finish up a painting- it turning into a commission!
Thank you, Laurie. It really was great to have it sell like that before it was finished! 🙂
Love it! Love that it’s going to someone who fell in love with it like that!
Thanks, Sage. ❤
