My greatest inspiration for painting comes from nature and life around me. My greatest inspiration for living comes from sharing life with “my kids”. Mix the two and you have a winning combination, in my book.
The Saturday before classes would start up heralded a favorite outdoor Fall activity and this time my sister and her kids joined me. The Feast of the Hunters’ Moon on the Wabash river near Lafayette, Indiana, is a family activity that is very interactive for all age levels. For the kids, it was a living history lesson and will be counted for one of their homeschool trips. For me it was a delightful opportunity to experience the world once again through their eyes.
As for the camera work… well, it was difficult to do with one hand being gripped so tightly by a 6 year old, but I managed to get Nathanael to let go a few times in order to get some shots.
