Park City Perfection, by Cristall Harper

It’s easy to love downtown Park City. It’s the most dog-friendly and artsy town I’ve ever been in, all wrapped up in colorful mountains, trendy store fronts, and perfect weather.

Buttercup and I enjoyed the early afternoon together on a business trip to Historic Park City. We headed first to Gallery MAR to hand deliver a batch of my newest dog paintings. Buttercup herself is the star in many of them. I was pretty relieved as we were leaving that Buttercup didn’t destroy any expensive masterpieces while perusing the gallery. The owner of Gallery MAR is named Maren, and she is a delight! She’s one of the sharpest and fairest gallery owners I’ve ever worked with and she has curated a great collection of originals in her downtown gallery. You can’t miss it – look for the signature yellow signs and prepare to be amazed.

Did you know that Gallery MAR won Best Gallery in Park City this summer as voted by the Park Record newspaper readers?

Gallery MAR carries my original dog paintings. Visit them on historic Main Street in Park City or at blog.gallerymar.com
Hooray, here are all of my little originals! They are perfect for any dog lover, and you can be sure that a dog lover painted them! See bigger photographs of them on the gallery website;

outtake #2…the dog can’t pose on demand.

After dropping off the art, we walked up and down Main Street to people watch and get a bite to eat at the 501 on Main (great hummus!) What is it about dining al fresco in a beautiful city that makes everything feel like it will be OK?




Park City is a city that loves dogs and art, so of course, we had a great day!


Even the post office in Park City is cute. It’s so Candleford…
