Saunders Fine Arts POTD - Flower Girl

I was second video shooting a wedding last weekend, and I just had to stop and take some stills of this adorable little flower girl. Her handmade dress and hair piece were really lovely. With all the tulle and a feather fringe, she looked like a little swan. Her mother was trying valiantly to get her to pose formally, but this cute tot just wasn't having it. What a face - those curls and those blue eyes - irresistible.

Patrick Saunders Plein Air Painting Workshop

Patrick Saunders taught his first plein air class on Sunday. The original date on Saturday was rained out, but Sunday turned out to be a beautiful day, and most participants were able to attend on Sunday.

A good time was had by all, and attendees were fortunate to have access to an incredible outdoor space for painting. Patrick already has requests for more workshops, so if you missed this one, you will have the chance to sign up for a future workshop.

Saunders Fine Arts POTD - Striped Rose

I photographed this beauty just before Rose Day June 1st at the Loose Park Rose Garden. I didn't know before now how relatively rare striped roses are, especially those that occur naturally.
