Art and Nature take the stage this year as Hill Country residents Daniel and Carol Adams share their work during the annual gathering of our area Audubon groups. Daniel formerly headed an art department at Walt Disney Productions and now paints his passion—nature (& many birds!). Carol, a retired Texas Parks & Wildlife Naturalist and Educator, now writes about the natural world in addition to helping run the couple’s gallery at Buchanan Dam. For four decades Daniel has been creating with magnificent skill subjects that he enjoys. And birds are a thread that has run through his whole career. A bird conservationist at heart, he looks forward to sharing his inspiration and vision with kindred souls. You can see more of Daniel’s art at: danieladams.artistwebsites.com
