Saunders Fine Arts POTD - Harriet the Bunny

Social distancing would be a lot more fun if we this sweet thing with us.

An image of an adoptable bunny I photographed at Animal Care & Control San Francisco back in the day. Adopted to a great home, thanks to excellent care and TLC at the best city animal shelter I've ever worked with. - Kimberly

Saunders Fine Arts POTD - Sleeping Kitties

For #ThrowbackThursday, a photo of all four of our kitties sleeping in a pile on our bed, taken in 2012.

We miss each and every one of them, and our dogs, every single day. In this time of social distancing, what we wouldn't give for a good snuggle with a fur kid. We can still hear each of them purring and snoring.

Saunders Fine Arts - POTD - Lighthouse ArtCenter Museum and School of Art, Tequesta, Florida

We're in the Sunshine State, it's 81 degrees, we've got some sand in our shoes, and we're surrounded by great works created at the Lighthouse Artcenter Museum and School of Art.

It's a very good day.

Saunders Fine Arts POTD - Cuttalossa Farm, Bucks County, Pennsylvania

For #ThrowbackThursday, a photo taken in New Hope, Pennsylvania in 2017.

It's not hard to see why this area became an artist colony, or why impressionist painter Daniel Garber settled here. Rain or shine, the light on this property is beautiful. 

On our first visit to Cuttalossa Farm in the Cuttalossa Valley Historic District, it was a rainy, overcast day, but what light there was still made the trees in this meadow glow, and gave the whole property the feeling of an enchanted forest.

Another special place we are lucky to have visited, and won't ever forget.

Saunders Fine Arts POTD - Sunrise on Spud Point Marina, Bodega Bay, California

For #ThrowbackThursday, a great memory of a morning spent at Spud Point Marina in Bodega Bay, California.

We were so struck by this scene that Patrick Saunders decided to paint it for the 2016 Sonoma Plein Air Festival, and it sold quickly.

Saunders Fine Arts POTD - R. Thomas Deluxe Grill, Atlanta, GA

I haven't been to the R. Thomas Deluxe Grill since my senior year of college. 

Me and a gaggle of other AP interns spent many happy evenings grabbing dinner here together after work. It was nice to find that this charming place is still around and thriving. - Kimberly
