There is a kindred spirit among those who have celebrated many years together at the Silver Dollar City Harvest Festival.
Pictured to the left is Mike Sears, painter and artist. A painter because of his medium -- an artist because of his talent to bring to life a fish twisting under water as it is about to bite a fisherman's lure.
Much of his work depicts country scenes on one-of-a-kind cut wood. More recently his popular work is available as a print. A couple years back Mike painted a series of barns depicting the seasons of life. His recent work captured the same with a progression of camping (from tent, pop-up, trailer to RV).
When not painting or telling a story at his booth, Mike likes to steal a few minutes to listen to The Homestead Pickers at the McHaffie cabin. We enjoy stopping by to see Mike and his wife Susie, catch up on Mike's new work and of course share a pew at the cabin for some great music.
"Bluegrass has brought more people together and made more friends than any music in the world. You meet people at festivals and renew acquaintances year after year."
