|"Future Past" by Josh Talbott|
One of his paintings I liked best I did not see in this exhibit. I found it, and the story behind it, equally beautiful, on his website. Go there to see this hummingbird painting "Tempo" and how it happened to be painted.
Lena Rushing had some interesting shadow boxes I had not seen before, but they were too difficult to photograph to include here. I didn't see them on her website either, but many of her paintings are there, and you will get a feel for her style if you go there. Her website also has the announcements of other exhibits where her work will be displayed for the rest of this year.
