Lee Udall Bennion: On the Spot

WHAT ARE YOU READING THESE DAYS?

Lately I have been reading The Book of Mormon (again), but I also have been reading a trilogy of books by Phillip Pullman, “The Golden Compass,” “The Subtle Knife” and the “Amber Spyglass.” They are listed as juvenile literature. I read them out loud to my teenage daughter, but I liked them as much as anything I have read lately.

WHO WOULD YOU CHOOSE TO PAINT YOUR PORTRAIT?

If I could choose anyone to paint my portrait it would have to be Vincent Van Gogh. He was the first artist that I noticed as a child, and I have always had a strong emotional/spiritual response to his work.

WHAT IS HANGING ABOVE YOUR MANTEL?

I have no mantle in my house, but the artist that would occupy that spot would have to be Ella Peacock. She was a dear freind, neighbor and mentor to me for many years and I have more of her work up on my walls than any other artist. The image of hers that I would put over a mantle would be the one of the Lehi Roller Mills she painted before it was surrounded by fast food and gas stations.
