BOB’S ART NEWS
I successfully taught a free two-hour educational outreach workshop at the Monroeville
Public Library (Acrylic Art with Bob Bickers) on October 15, 2016, sponsored by the
Monroeville Arts Council and UPMC East. More on this event can be found on my art
I love autumns in Murrysville. The backdrop of colorful leaves always changes the
landscape in exciting and unexpected ways. Each day that I can, I set off on exploratory
expeditions through our parks and neighbor-hoods seeking to capture with my camera
new sights and compositions I have never seen before. I am not disappointed and at
dark I return home, my camera filled with treasures.
I usually use my best camera and lens, but I have learned to keep a small, handy
camera in my shirt pocket for those sudden and unexpected photo opportunities. For
this photo, I drove up to a stop sign with my window down and saw the tractor crossing
the road. Almost by reflex, I pulled out my camera, took the picture, and then the
farmer was gone. I smiled. It’s harvest season, after all, and I had just brought
in my own fine crop. - Bob Bickers
My thanks to theMurrysville Trail Alliancefor publishing my photograph and allowing
me to express myself in their fine publication. Hope we can do it again sometime!
