Smoky Mountain Art Retreat

From August 31 – September 5 Donna and I hosted our first Smoky Mountain Art Retreat!  As prudence would suggest, we started small with just four of us.  That turned out to be a good number for the Mountain House, which is rustic at best.  It was a blessing to be away from radio, television and the internet, close to nature and fellow artists.  We had a wonderful time! 

We each came with thoughts on what we wanted to do, and Fran provided our theme artist for the week – Andy Goldsworthy.  For more info on this British scupltor, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andy_Goldsworthy .  I brought supplies for blank journals for those who wanted to do one, and we all worked on a collaborative journal.  I’ve included several contributions from that one in mine, which is shown above. 

I came back refreshed and inspired – ready for the Autumn markets and whatever treasures the harvest may bring.  Hope to see you at South of the James this Saturday, September 19th.
