Saunders Fine Arts POTD - Airstream Bambi Sport 16, Marshfield, Missouri

For #ThrowbackThursday, a photo of our first Airstream, the Bambi Sport 16, that we ended up calling the "Baked Potato." 

This is a great memory for us of a beautiful morning on the Young farm near Marshfield, Missouri in 2016, where Patrick Saunders taught a plein air workshop. The Bambi looked right at home next to this gorgeous old barn. Patrick also did a painting of our Bambi against this barn that ended up on the cover of Airstream Life magazine.

Throwback Thursday - Saunders Fine Arts Portrait Photography

I haven’t shot any portraits in a long time, so for #ThrowbackThursday, here are a few of my old favorites. 

Maybe it’s time to talk Patrick Saunders into sitting for another portrait. - Kimberly

Saunders Fine Arts POTD - Maui, Hawaii

#TakeMeBackTuesday to our 2018 trip to Maui.

We explored the entire island, and there were stunning sights and views everywhere, but we will especially never forget the bamboo forest in Haleakalā National Park, and a beautiful morning spent on the trail to Honoloa Bay.

A beautiful sunset at the Montage Kapalua Bay.

The trail to Honoloa Bay leads you through an enchanting tropical forest so beautiful it doesn't seem real. Photos hardly do it justice.
