The Great Outdoors on Canvas
Artist: Don Lewis
Smoky Hill Library
Artist's Statement: I’ve been taking photos off and on since I was old enough to hold a Kodak Brownie (a long time). In 2004 I bought my first digital camera and it rejuvenated my interest.
I enjoy taking photos of landscapes, flowers and wildlife. National Parks of the Western U.S. are my favorite places to go. My favorite photos have lots of vivid colors. It’s fun to be able to share them with others.

Artist's Statement: Having lived in Italy as a child and young adult, the travel bug struck early. At first my photos were for me, to capture ‘my’ travel moment. But I’ve found that by sharing photos of my travels people share their own travel stories in return, which has become my favorite part of exhibiting them.
