Paint Camp

Affectionately known as

The End of the Trail

Long time supporters of the arts, Johnny and Jeanie Morris of Bass Pro Shops, & Big Cedar Lodge have built a new 18,000 sq foot “Cedar Creek Spa” filled exclusively with plein air art created by artists Jason Sacran, John Lasater IV, and myself, R. Gregory Summers. We have been spending weeks at a time on site painting the properties of Big Cedar Lodge, Top of the Rock, and Dogwood Canyon. © 2015 Big Cedar Lodge - America´s Premier Wilderness Resort 612 Devil's Pool Road, Ridgedale, Missouri 65739

Paintings

It's why I'm here...and you? Come in and take a look, 90% plein air works, the rest... you guessed it, studio pieces. Many still available, inquire within.

Always something

The life of an artist is a bit different than many, the life of a plein air artist is stranger still. A little looser, and you can't let things get to you.

Co-founder MVIS

Summers painting on location at Indian Cave State Park, with fellow MVIS founders Jeff Sparks and Rachel Mindrup. (not shown, Brent Seevers) Here some of the ideas on creating a group for representational artists, to help grow, and build impressionistic art in the upper Midwest were formed. (Loosely, mostly we painted )

“I am inspired by creation. I am driven by the experience. 

“I paint the land that I claim to be a part of. It is not to replicate the scene before me, more to bring back a piece of what took me there in the first place.”

R. Gregory Summers

Catch me doing something right

Gone  now, Rick still guides me along this path I’ve taken. He saw in me hope, and gave me the courage.

 

 My intent is to keep his dreams alive, somehow, someway.
