Photographer Bob Pardue Creates Subdued Color Fine Art Photos At Key West FL

March 13, 2021 - Lancaster, SC

Key West Florida: The summers are hot in the South Florida town of Key West but Jean and Bob Pardue braved the heat to get a look at one of the town's favorite attractions. "Key West Lighthouse and Keepers Quarters Museum is a fine art photographer's dream." says Pardue as he proudly shows a subdued color art print of the tip of the lighthouse peeking over the green palm trees.

The lighthouse pictured here opened in 1848. But, the oddest characteristic? A woman was installed as its Keeper. This seldom happened during the 19th century. The Key West Lighthouse underwent a number of upgrades during the following years. Today, the museum represents a maritime heritage as part of Key West history.

Bob Pardue Salutes Educators

No doubt parents of turbulent kids are excited to see schools back in session. But, what about the poor educators? It's a fact that teachers need encouragement, especially during this time of year when they don't know what to expect from new students entering their classrooms.

This photo art image is meant to do just that. It reminds the teachers of what education is supposed to be about. The goal is to encourage and inspire those in the teaching profession to move onward and upward with a famous quote by Bill Beattie. Art photographer Bob Pardue says; "My hat's off to those brave enough to educate. Hug a teacher today!"

New Mixed Media - The Police Car

It's a joy to go back to images I've photographed and play with them in new programs. So, this image of an old black and white police car was just begging to be turned into an "oil painting". The picture is a mixed media image and will give the look of an oil art print when hanging on the wall. Please visit the site to see more art prints.
