Crafting Great Experiences

Our mission is to create an excellent experience for each customer and we believe you deserve our best. While each item we serve has been prepared with care and patience, the ingredients play a major role in the final product.

Art on Display: Brothers Doug and Kelly Daniels

Doug Daniels contributes the watercolor paintings to this dual art exhibit.

Working for various companies as an illustrator and designer, and art and creative directors, I retired in 2005 to devote time to travel, family, and painting. I am inspired by Andrew Wyeth, Reynold Weidenaar, Ted Kautzky and Charlie Forman. Mary, my wife of 52 years, our children and all our grandkids. Each of these folks have made an impression on how and why I paint.

Kelly Daniels contributes the photography portion of the exhibit.

I started in photography over 40 years ago. I picked up a camera before I got my drivers license at 16. I picked up this interest from one of my high school teachers, Mr. Martin. Watching him taking pictures around the school changed the way I looked at the world. In the intervening years I’ve taught myself darkroom techniques back in the film days and today I’m learning the intricacies of the digital darkroom. I’ve learned in various ways, from individuals in my life like Mr. Martin, taking workshops and occasionally formal classes, and a lot of experimentation. Waterfalls and flowing water seem to always work their way back around to me. I find peace in these watery scenes.

There will be an artist reception Friday November 9th from 8-10pm.
