Back to the Wichita Mountains

Here are some more production stills from the Wichita Mountains. We are now in Shawnee getting ready to shoot at the Mabee-Gerrer Museum of Art and St. Gregory's Abbey for the next three days. We will be staying at the Abbey during our time here.

Climbing the rocks.....

Shooting the vistas and the buffalos....

Katherine prepares to draw and be interviewed.

Preparing for the interview with Katherine.....

The view from our perch on the rocks. The rocks are primarily pink granite and covered in vibrant colors of lichen and moss in a normally wet year.

You get a sense of the size and formations of the rocks from this photo.

Katherine and Jack Bryan, her former department chair at Cameron University and good friend enjoy going out into the Wichita Mountains together to sketch. They have a totally different approach to what they see and perceive in their art. You'll hear all about it in our documentary.


  1. Saturday was great day in the Wichita Mountains full of new memories and recalled experiences of making art, hiking and, as always, taking in the ever unique light and mood of this ancient range. Thanks for the privilege of talking about art, creativity and the importance of preserving nature for future generations to enjoy and respect.

  2. Thanks Jack. We really enjoyed meeting you and interviewing you. Hope to see you in Santa Fe too. Fran

  3. A client suggested that I place a "nice painting" rather higher up on the wall of my dental surgery, so that she could see while dental work was being done for her. A good idea, I thought, to distract clients.
    My nurse found and ordered this canvas print,, by Gustav Klimt, by browsing to who made our excellent print from their database of images from western art.
