Aquinas Exhibit September-October

I had a solo exhibit for the month of September at the Aquinas College Gallery. The theme was all about my back yard. I began with what is my own backyard, and proceeded to claim the different areas that I traveled, including my sons homes in Austin and Baton Rouge, a trip to New York City, and a month long stay in Japan. In essence, the lesson for myself was that my back yard extends outward to the world, and my interest should be and can be the entirety of of our planet.

Front Yard trees

I found one of the last days of the fall to be a beautiful one with blue sky, moderate temperatures, and leaves still hanging on the trees that were a golden yellow.

Then, a few days later, by setting up my easel in front of the forest in the front yard, I was able to catch the light changing on the tree trunks as they were affected by the sunlight.
