A Visit with Nol Putnam

We had the great pleasure recently of spending the morning with our friend and acclaimed artist-blacksmith/photographer, Nol Putnam.    He was featured as part of the 2013 Artists  of the Rappahannock Studio and Gallery Tour and we stopped by to show our support.  

It was a wonderful treat to spend some time with Nol — he’s a dear inspiration for both Jeff and myself (he’s the very reason I am learning to use a 35mm lens b/c of a simple email from him that unleashed an idea, which is why I am taking vertical pictures again after a 10 year hiatus!….) Nol has many more important honors, though, including creating several of the ironwork gates for the National Cathedral.  

And my kids love that his huge ironwork pieces can’t be broken, not that they were wrestling or anything after 3 hours of visiting!  

It was a gift to spend time with Nol — what a lovely morning.
