Patrick Saunders edited together a nice short of video I shot at the Kansas City Museum's first annual quick paint contest this month. I can't wait to photograph and film more events like this once we are on the road. - Kimberly

Where Will Canvases Dry When We're On The Road?

Patrick Saunders will have to come up with a new way to dry canvases for plein air events once we are on the road and don't have a balcony anymore.

The Go Cart And The Pod Look So Cute Together

Baby got her first wax this week, getting us one step closer to hitting the road in August. Can't wait.

How cute do my little Smart and the Pod look together?

Patrick saw the photo and said 'Too bad the Smart can't tow.' What a sight that would be.

Patrick Saunders painted this in the rain at Craig Sole Designs in Overland Park as part of the annual Stems Plein Air event. It was difficult for him to paint this year at this event because it rained constantly for the last two weeks, but this charming work came out of less than ideal weather. Patrick said he felt the light reflections on the wet patio rocks is what really made the painting.
