The Longleaf Forest was inspired by the forest on my father’s land where I loved to roam when I was a girl. I’ve recently learned about the great Longleaf forests that once covered the southeastern United States and the fascinating story of the Longleaf Ecosystem. I thought my ancestors were pyromaniacs, but it turns out they knew what they were doing when they “burned”.
Join the class on any Wednesday in June or July. Every three hour class ($45.) will include a little drawing instruction, some color theory (how to make the color you want by mixing the three primaries), and every class will include some painting techniques you will use over and over again (for example: the same technique for painting clouds can be used to paint trees). 706-888-1110.
I am honored to receive the Carmike Cinemas Corporate Sponsor’s Award for Cat Brier, Hadden Wood. This 11 x 14 watercolor sold for 100 volunteer hours at the 2014 Young Professionals “Time For Art” event in November. The highest bidder has one year to work their 100 volunteer hours for the local, charitable organization of their choice. I’ve had greeting cards made and plan to publish a limited edition print of Cat Brier.
