It's that time of the year, when families and friends gather to celebrate Thanksgiving and share stories, commentary, jokes and lots of good food. It's also a time to remember those who have past and cherish the time spent with them.
My oil painting, 'Serenity' is a reflection of what I read recently. "The muddy waters represent the struggles of life, the bud of the flower represents a person that has not yet reached their full potential."
One day, about halfway through a painting session on Snow Canyon, I began seeing faces in the rocks. My imagination was in full mode. Perhaps the slumbering giant with his hand coming over the edge had been rudely awakened by the piercing scream of a Copper's Hawk.
I learned to paint during a long and very hot summer trip with my grandmother to help her run the concession stands at the rodeos in Colorado and in Gallup and Albuquerque, New Mexico. I was a young, impressionable kid, fascinated with incredible rock formations and the cliff dwellings at Mesa Verde.
I often visit Tower Grove Park to explore its foliage, pavilions and architecture for inspiration to paint. Here are some of my fall paintings inspired by this historic city park, designed by Henry Shaw.
Bob and I were there for the ribbon-cutting at Citygarden to capture the magical moment for the culmination of 15 months of construction and an estimated $25 - $30 million in funding from the St. Louis-based Gateway Foundation. We visited the construction site many times for the St. Louis Front Page, shooting through the chainlink fence that surrounded two blocks between Eighth and Tenth and Chestnut and Market Streets. After it opened officially to the public, July 1, 2009, we returned often to photograph the sculptures, foliage and people enjoying the amenities.
Autumn is here. It's a new season, a new beginning. I'm so excited to introduce St. Louis Photos and Fine Art, a collection of photographs and original oil paintings featuring St. Louis architecture, attractions, parks and botanicals.
