Painting and Photography

Fellows_Phipps_0001

I posted a photo from my Iowa Photographs series on Facebook recently. My friend and painter Stan Fellows from Aurora, CO was inspired by the composition and was compelled to do a study. We agreed to a trade. It was a very satisfying experience to see a painter's interpretation. We both exchanged our thoughts and insight and believe we both learned from the experience. There is a long tradition of artists trading work. It's nice to own work by other artists and know that there is a mutual appreciation and insight shared.
