Patrick Saunders Landscape Commission

This was my favorite place on the property Patrick Saunders and I hiked yesterday. The owner of the acreage has commissioned Patrick to paint a landscape of the property, and I really hope she picks this spot.

I am not a fan of spiders, but their webs are beautiful. Patrick Saunders spied this beautiful thing when we were out yesterday hiking with the dogs in Shawnee Mission Park.

Patrick Saunders' Rosedale WWI Memorial Arch Painting

Patrick Saunders and I visited the Rosedale Memorial Arch in Kansas City, Kansas, last January. The arch sits on a hill, and we wanted to photograph it in winter light. Patrick wanted winter light and vegetation for this painting because he wanted the focus to be on the arch itself,and to be able to depict it in in soft, cool, winter light. I love the result - cool winter light and the colors it creates on structures and nature can be very beautiful.
