Saunders Fine Arts Photography - Richmond, Virginia

As soon as Easels in Frederick was over, we had to hustle to Richmond, Virginia, for Plein Air Richmond, which started the day after Easels ended. 

We lucked out again with a great host couple who could have not been more gracious and welcoming. They have two dogs who make the most adorable pair, especially side by side - big Bentley and little Dudley - so more pet photography and painting of course ensued. Patrick loves painting pets. They are by far his favorite subject. We loved Bentley and Dudley's painting so much it ended up on our latest business card.

"Bentley & Dudley" (oil on canvas, 12"x36") by Patrick Saunders. Painting photo by Saunders Fine Arts.

One of the things that really struck us about Richmond is the vast array of large scale street art murals painted all over the city. The Richmond Mural Project, a collaboration between Art Whino and RVA Magazine, brought artists from all over the world to paint more than 100 street murals in Richmond. So when you explore this city, you find amazing art everywhere.
