‘Squire Boone’s Keep’ takes 3rd Place at juried show

Squire Boone’s Keep

My image of one of Indiana’s natural treasures secreted deep within Squire Boone Caverns south of Corydon, titled “Squire Boone’s Keep,” was awarded Third Place in the Photography category in the 2017 Covered Bridge Art Association’s Associate Members Show.

The annual juried show is the July featured exhibit in the CBAA’s Gallery in Rockville, Indiana.

I am a descendant of Squire Boone Jr., one of Indiana’s most prominent pioneers and brother of the famous Kentucky pioneer Daniel Boone.

Squire Boone Jr.  discovered the original cave opening about 1790 while trying to escape pursuing Indians.

Squire Boone Jr. later owned the land above the caverns in Mauckport, Indiana, where he built his home and the first grist mill in 1809 in Harrison County. His son, Moses Boone, settled in Putnam County, Indiana, and Moses’ daughter, Susan Boone Rissler, was my great-great-great-grandmother. Moses and Susan are buried in Boone-Hutcheson Cemetery in Putnam County.

Born on the Libra-Scorpio Cusp for Arts Illiana

This abstraction of my conflicted self, titled “Born on the Libra-Scorpio Cusp,” has been selected for “Self Portraits: The Original Selfie,” the current exhibition in the Arts Illiana Gallery in Terre Haute, Indiana.

My digital art and other “Selfies” selected by guest curator and Terre Haute artist Rachel Hellmann can be viewed through July 21 in the gallery at 23 N. Sixth St.

The full title is “Middle Child Born on the Libra-Scorpio Cusp.”

A brief explanation (because it would take several minutes and space here to explain the imagery cocooned by the two opposing profiles):

The Libra-Scorpio Cusp – Oct. 20 through 26 – also is referred to as the Cusp of Drama and Criticism.

I was born a middle child on the middle date of this transitional phase. (The drama – and passion – begin.)

So you ask, which of these signs of passion pulls me stronger?

According to DailyHoroscope.com … “The greatest challenge for Libra-Scorpio cuspers is to balance the mental nature of Libra with the emotional side of Scorpio.”

I believe God predetermined my birth date and birth order, but I must admit, the traits of a Libra and a Scorpio combined with the clinical explanation of middle child syndrome often fit my psychological profile to a T !

When it comes to my artwork, I am my own worst critic.
