Lisa Loucks-Christenson News

RIP Mickey Gilley!

RIP Mickey Gilley!

The last thing Mickey Gilley and I talked about after recording an hour long show and the tags was the possibility of me writing his life story. He could have asked anyone, but he asked me  to come down to Branson to help him write his biography. I had thought about it many times.

I feel fortunate to have recorded shows with the greatest talents, several of my guests for my one-hour show are listed below, and all of these fine talents had golden hearts. They all left their gratitude in their own way, their own words: appreciation and love for their fans.

Here are some of my guests that touched all of our lives during my one hour broadcast with them:

Micky Gilley

Jean Craighead George

Porter Wagoner

Author: Lisa Loucks-Christenson

Release:   Pre-order

Format: Hardcover

Winter Bugs Exhibit Edition is an insect documentary recorded during one winter season in a Minnesota ghost town (the former town of Beaver, Minnesota), and currently a state-owned and managed wildlife refuge. It is a mini documentary that takes place inside the author’s Walk the Burn documentary, having been dually recorded in the same location.

Number one international best-selling and award-winning author, photographer, and illustrator Lisa Loucks-Christenson shares her personal observations of Minnesota’s smallest and most overlooked species. This photo collection shows these insects as they plow through the snow using four, six or eight legs (if the seasons hasn’t been too hard on them, and they are lucky enough to retain the number of appendages they were either born with or they eventually developed). Lisa’s photos are the voice and record of a survival story like no other. The photos capture insects while they endure every possible weather pattern, sit next to predators that don’t eat them, and find shelter from rain, sleet, snow, and wind.

Winter Bugs Exhibit Edition reveals the journey of more than 200 lives who shared a brief encounter with the author as she discovered their winter abodes and crossed their paths while lying on the ice and shooting through it. These journeys took the author into the open water to discover faces under the surface of those who looked up or swam by while she was there. These are the experiences of a professional female outdoor photographer who drove every day, through blizzards, sleet storms, and ice-coated roads, never missing a day, so she could capture this story from the start of winter to the exact beginning of spring.

These are not just any images: this collection has already inspired others to look for their own “Winter Bugs,” and has opened the eyes of people of all ages, giving them an opportunity to see up close what is seemingly impossible to see (especially when the weather drops below -30 degrees Fahrenheit). Now, you too can be a Winter Bugs Exhibit Edition eyewitness to the lives that carried on, no matter their circumstances, no matter the troubles they faced, while the author collected the smallest of stories ever told (in one season, anyway).

Lisa Loucks-Christenson recorded over 200 active species while they travelled, sat, or hid; on land, in trees, under hanging leaves, or in water. This is a collection like no other, because it also includes spiders, caterpillars, one-celled organisms, and ants, as well as insects in various life stages, from nymph to full adults. All of these images were recorded with two cameras in hand, and often with the author’s lens reversed to capture the finest details of her tiny subjects. Every photo included in this documentary is a true wildlife image: none were posed or handled or shot in any type of controlled environment. These photos were shot in the field, using tinfoil to reflect light, flashlights to give depth, and any other means required to capture the free-roaming subjects in the short seconds available.

Together with Lisa’s Bald Eagle documentary, the Winter Bugs exhibit and the Winter Bugs! First Edition ran for over two years as featured exhibits at the National Eagle Center in Wabasha, Minnesota. In addition to reviews in regional newspapers and magazines, the book, Winter Bugs! First Edition, and the exhibit’s opening also aired on the regional television news. The exhibit also comes up from time to time on podcasts and outdoor shows to which the author is invited as a guest.

Winter Bugs Exhibit Edition contains almost every image from the original exhibit, but also includes images of events within the exhibit.

Photo Trader™ cards, loose or matted images, art cards, tote bags, shirts, and other merchandise are available for purchase. The Winter Bugs exhibit will soon be an online program for schools, nursing homes, educational centers, and nature clubs. The author continues to offer classroom programs that entertain school groups, senior citizens, and people from all over the world who visit her galleries.
