Jeffrey Nanney, Missouri Nature Sketches
“Four years ago, my wife and I moved to Branson to semi-retire,” says Jeffrey Nanney. “We love the area and I wanted to create artwork that reflected the beauty of the Ozarks and the people.
“Deciding on colored pencil on canvas, I went to the hobby store for supplies. The lady there told me that medium ‘Wouldn’t work.’ I said, ‘Watch me.” I focus on birds, landscapes, and people in nature. I had stopped for awhile but was recently inspired by Hollister’s First Friday Art Walk.
