Wyoming Vista Third Place honor bittersweet


View of Wyoming after crossing Beartooth Mountains

“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.

Fall Ripple Affect – retitled Serenity Pool – in its rightful home


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.
