Way out West
Art Inspirations
A Collection of Photographs and the Artwork they Inspire
The beauty of wildlife in a desert landscape, the sounds of thundering hooves or songbirds, the brilliant colors of flowers in bloom can inspire art

The concept for presenting the original photograph that was the inspiration for her artwork side by side with her art was concieved by artist Deanna Thibault and was first put into practice a few years ago in her Thibault4Art gallery in Downtown Tucson, Arizona when she hosted guest photographer, Donald Knight. Donald and Deanna are working together again and adding more artists to bring this concept back to Tucson and the surrounding area. They hope to bring this to more venues and add even more artists since this was well received when first introduced.
