This fine art painting is Jon McNaughtons version of the Sacred Grove, the special location where Joseph Smith prayed to his Heavenly Father and received the First Vision.
The artist, Jon McNaughton, recalls, “There are places in the world where you somehow know that you are walking on sacred ground. I have felt such feelings on occasion as I have stood before nature’s beauty. So pristine and pure, I know that this is a moment to absorb and remember. This painting represents such a place. I saw the sunlight parting the trees with its tiny particles of light dancing in the air. The reverence I felt for God and nature was overwhelming. This is my version of the Sacred Grove.”
