Fresh Paint and a Holiday Opening

Fresh Paint and a Holiday Opening

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.

The Backroads in Pixels and Paint

We love driving the backroads with our cameras on nice days, foggy days, even snowy days. 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.

Kearney Art in the Park 2016

Gary and I are getting ready to share our art and photography at Kearney Art in the Park this Sunday, July 10th from 9:00 to 5:00. Also showing from our area is my friend, Alissa Millsap, she has lots of goodness to share.

Gary has been taking photography and metal art to this show for many years and we have met so many awesome people who love art. It is always well attended.

The temperature might be a little warm but there is lots of shade, music throughout the day and into the evening, and great food including shaved ice to cool you off.

If you are local, I hope you can make it to the show and be inspired by beauty, goodness and creativity. If you come, please stop by and say hi to us, we would love to see you.
