Watercolors by Deb Anderson
"My watercolors are the response of joy that I experience as I contemplate all the blessing of shape, color, texture, and light. I find inspiration for my artwork in nature and the rural landscape.
When I see shapes and colors that give me pleasure, I want to hold those fleeting images that enlarge my soul. The paintbrush is my tool to accomplish that. My hope as I explore new subjects and techniques is that my eyes will see shape and light more clearly; my hand will translate the vision that I've received; and my heart will be open to beauty wherever it may be found.
I am self-taught and consider a number of local artists as my mentors."
Wood Lathe Artist: Kurt Anderson
"I refer to my turning venture as 'Tossed and Turned.' I have been turning wood since 2001.
I try to mostly use discarded, donated, or scavenged wood for my art - thus tossed and then turned. I find immense satisfaction and relaxation from the hours of time spent unveiling the beauty that God has wrapped in and around various trees. Each piece of wood has something to show you. Some pieces are very basic while other are very out-of-the-box interesting. I approach each turning with an open mind and a flexible plan,
as sometimes my bowl really 'wants to be' a plate. One can force a design, but oft at the expense
of missing the very gift that the wood wants to display. Remaining bark, holes, various imperfections
paired with polished, perfect surfaces remind me of life. Collectively, they make us who we are and
how we are presented to the rest of the world."
We take life slow and steady around here, although something we scramble a bit more than other times...Seasons! Fall is a great time to get out of the house with friends & family and enjoy those last beautiful days before that white stuff begins to drop from the sky. We enjoy Fall, when the fruit of our labor, becomes evident. We want to share the beauty of the season with those who visit Maple Hills Orchard. ~ Jonna & Gary
