Patrick Saunders 4th Friday Floral Show

We had a great time at Patrick Saunders' floral show for 4th Friday at Freeland Photography in downtown Lee's Summit.
Patrick did an onsite painting demonstration from an arrangement designed by Andrea K. Grist Floral Designs. The weather was kind, the studio had lots of traffic, and it was a lovely evening.

Saunders Fine Arts POTD - Earthship Biotecture Home

Patrick and I rented an Earthship home for our stay in Taos, New Mexico last September. Our vacation rental was part of a larger Earthship community, and I photographed one of the homes that was under construction while we were there. This is only the hallway of a pretty palatial earthship, so I can only imagine what the rest of the home will be like, and can't wait to photograph it again the next time we are in Taos - hopefully it will be finished. Some of these homes are personal projects being completed by individual owners, and they spend years designing and crafting them.
