My husband, Ned and I had a great time in Blowing Rock. We made delightful friends and weathered the cold of the winter high in the Blue Ridge Mountains!
During this period, I found the Art Mart Academy in Boone, NC. This great art academy was exactly what I needed for continuing with my art explorations. I programmed myself to paint (at least) four days a week and attend classes
two of those days. I gained great insight for defining a path of creativity for the
rest of my life.
I thank John Bond, the owner and navigator of art classes, who included exercises, homework assignments, critiques and opportunities to challenge oneself while painting in his studio.
Please think about a stop at the Jones House in Boone, noon-5pm Monday-Friday during the month of June 2016. There are several of my classmates included in the show!!!
