“Wyoming Vista” was awarded Third Place in the Photography category at the 2022 Fall Open Show scheduled Sept. 4-25 in the Covered Bridge Art Association Gallery at Rockville, Indiana. Thank you to ISU professor emeritus of art David Erickson, the show judge.
This awe-inspiring landscape from a 2020 motorcycle ride through the Beartooth Mountains with my Leroy is a dye sublimation print on aluminum and float-mounted off white acrylic.
I lost my Leroy to cancer August 24, so remembering one of the many experiences we shared in our 20 years together is now bittersweet.
I borrowed this scene of Indiana autumn from my Clay County neighbors. In this case, the “grass IS greener ” on the other side. I have woods and farmland, they have that and more. They are truly blessed, and I for them allowing me to drink in their view. This one is “busy” but gives you a snapshot of the colorful season we are blessed with each year. The ripple effect disturbed the reflection, but I like it, because it reminds me that in addition to the heavens and the earth, God also created the fishes in the sea. It also is humbling because I realize that no matter how hard I try, I can’t recreate perfection.
In 2017, I retitled the 2014 landscape image “Serenity Pool” for the River City Art Association Juried Exhibition hosted/sponsored by Union Hospital to celebrate its 125th anniversary in Terre Haute.
This April, Fall Ripple Affect went to my neighbors with the Serenity Pool in their backyard.
