BEHIND THE SCENES
This issue’s Artist Profile, 87-year-old Norman Ogden, opened his home to the Lynchburg Living team the end of January. After a sit-down interview with editor Shelley Basinger, he took everyone downstairs to see a room full of his woodworking masterpieces and later to his shop in the garage.
Norman wasn’t used to all of the lights and contraptions used for a feature photo shoot, but he was a great sport, even joking with photographer Ashlee Glen that he “would make a great scarecrow.” He also showed off his “Pawpaw” skills when holding Shelley’s 6-month-old son, Brooks.
On pages 22-23, read a Q&A with Norman that includes his take on the farmhouse craze and even why he’s thankful for his fingers!
