Last October I spent a few days in Mullen, Nebraska, for a painting workshop with Shanna Kunz. (Fabulous). The last morning, I got up early and went out with my camera to the place we had painted the previous afternoon - a meadow with the Middle Loup running through. I wanted to see what it was like in the morning light. It did not disappoint. The water was glittering. The air was cool and a little misty. And the sun was starting to warm everything and give it a glow.Read More
There is a most lovely art oasis for Nebraska art in Bassett, Nebraska, thanks to vision, many hands, and a multitude of big hearted givers. The Old Feed Store Art Center opened in early 2018 with an exhibit of Joel Sartore’s “Photo Ark” in cooperation with the Museum of Nebraska Art. Since then, other Nebraska artists, musicians and poets have shown and performed in the space.Read More

The Backroads in Pixels and Paint

Gary likes to shoot anything unusual especially old buildings, vehicles, rusty things, etc. I also gravitate toward this subject matter and I like looking for light and shadow with my camera. These photos are inspiration for when I get back in the studio with my paints.Read More
