Painting the town

It’s been an exciting two weeks, personally AND work-wise.

I turned 25 a little less than two weeks ago, and the day before my birthday was a fantastic day, simply because I got some really fun, different art to stand alone in the paper.

I heard there were going to be some high school art students helping a lady from the Saenger Theater paint windows downtown in preparation for that weekend’s Art Walk, a event that is held a few- times a year that includes, music, art, crafts, vendors and everything in between on the streets of downtown Hattiesburg. I’ve been a few times — all for the paper — and am always amazed at what people can create.

But I was going out of town that weekend and couldn’t make it to the Art Walk. So why not photograph something pertaining to it beforehand? Especially when we needed wild art.

The following is my FAVORITE shot, and it ran very large on the Pine Belt page of the paper.

Students from Sacred Heart Catholic School helped Rosie Ricks, front of the house manager at the Saenger Theater, paint windows at the business for this weekend
