The leaves were changing and the weather was brisk. It was a perfect time to lead a workshop in the mountains of East Tennessee at The Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts. I had 15 eager and talented students who painted, took photos and generally took in the beauty around them. We painted cabins, fields, creeks and a stunning 180 degree mountain panorama from the top of the Smoky Mountains. It was astounding! I really enjoyed getting to know these ladies. We often ate lunch and dinner together or shared a glass of wine at the end of the day by a fire. I saw a few black bears too which made the week even more exciting. Here are a few pictures to share with you so you can get a sense of where we were. Some of the art you’ll see were paintings and exercises in progress. Enjoy!Continue reading I Loved Teaching A Workshop At Arrowmont Oct. 14-20, 2018!
