“These Colors Taste Like Summer” by Kay Geraghty
 photo rendition

Kay Geraghty lives in Mondovi. She’s been lucky enough to visit several places in the world and has fun photos from them all. Africa, Cuba, Marshall Islands, and Australia to name a few. Kay and her brother Dennis also travel the back roads of WI and find many photo treasures in the small towns they pass through.

“This piece was taken 8/10/2013 in Augusta, WI. The weather was perfect and the late afternoon sun ran across the large fields.  It was a beautiful day. I call my type of work ‘photo renditions.’ Each photo goes through Adobe Photoshop where I add several different layers of color, textures, and often parts from other photos. I then look for different ways of presenting my work. Besides framing my art, I now do a process called photoEncaustics. I use several layers of beeswax and damar resin along with pigmented wax. This new art form is fun and very interesting.”  – The Artist

Volume One finds its cover art in a number of ways, from local art shows to random emails to knowing someone who knows someone who knows a great artist. The art always originates from a current or former Chippewa Valley resident. If you'd like to submit cover art, send us a letter.
