FAIRMONT — Instead of taking pictures of what he experiences, Don Mundell paints what he experiences.

Mundell takes his and others experiences through life and creates scenes from life’s adventures. His artwork is displayed at the Marion County Public Library in Downtown Fairmont.

Mundell likes painting in narrative style, telling a story and letting the viewer decide what the story is.

“I like leaving it open-ended,” he said. “I don’t want to show too much to give away the story, I want to leave it open for people to imagine what is happening.”
