Opposite the wall where my backdrops are hung, I'm collecting and covering my studio space with things that inspire me. The Wall. Old postcards, family photos, digital art, and random bits from my travels. I find a lot of creative energy in other artist's work and below are three works I thought I would share.

A year ago today the world lost Larry Nowlan. Today, he came to visit.
Heather and family kindly gifted one of Larry's incredible bas relief panels to the Snapdragon Inn in the hopes we could find a place to share his wonderful work. It is beautifully framed and full of the emotion and energy found in all of Larry's art. The fact that the subject of the panel is Maxfield Parrish, makes the connection to our town all the more powerful. We are so honored to be able to share Larry's art with the visitors who come to the inn. I am personally touched and in awe of the continued positive power an artists' work can have on a community and on me. Make art, make life.
It was good to see you again today Larry.
