Artist portrait of Phil Ponder in his studio

This month I had a chance to photograph Nashville watercolor artist Phil Ponder in his home studio. I interviewed him for my podcast artist interview series on The Creative Push. He is best known for his hand-painted iconic architectural images of Nashville. When I met Phil at the end of last year through a friend while at an art gathering, I was surprised to find out he was from my hometown of Ocala, Florida.

Although Phil started growing his career as a painter after retiring, he has gained success in Nashville and his work is preserving the everchanging architectural history here in Tennessee. He was a pleasure to talk with for my podcast.
