Frontier Homestead State Park Museum is pleased to announce a special exhibit by digital artist Don Paul, running through May 29.  Using a stylus and his I-Pad, Paul, a wildlife biologist and photographer by training, combines his love of language and his interest in digital art to create a series of "punny" images.

"I'm intrigued by the suppleness of the English language," Paul says. "The flexibility of the mind as it searches for meaning and visual reference to spoken expressions interests me. Here you will find my unapologetic twist on idioms, homonyms and other semantic relationships turned into visual puns. I do apologize if I have happened upon one of your inventions; you must be as odd as I. Pondering the images for the show I mused what might be appreciated in Iron County where I was born in 1942. What homonym might be appropriate here? And I landed upon sheep dip (better upon than in). Some unfamiliar might imagine a dip of mutton pate` spread on crackers. If you're not privy to sheep ranching you might look it up."  Paul lives in Mountain Green, Utah.
