I am proud to say that I now have several originals and prints for sale at the Cheekwood Gift Shop. Several of the pieces illustrate beautiful butterflies, grasshoppers, and dragonflies. I have to say that is perfect timing since a new exhibition will be going in May2014 called David Rogers’ Big Bugs.
For those of you who have been lucky enough to visit Cheekwood Botanical Garden and Museum you will know that this is one of the most beautiful and peaceful location in Tennessee. For the artists out there, each direction you look there is another vision waiting to be photographed, drawn, or painted.
This past Father’s Day I had the opportunity to set up my easel, paints, and palette knives and start a painting in the Herb Garden. It wasn’t long after I set up, children and entire families came up to me to see what I was doing. It was a fun experience talking with the kids and parents about painting and art. A couple hours later I finished my painting, packed up and headed home with a piece of art that captures a small glimpse of what Cheekwood has to offer. I’m sure to be back again and again.
