This spring I had the honor of being selected to participate in a plein aire painting event for the centennial celebration of The Crossnore School in Avery County NC. The Crossnore School provides residential education for children in need with a full campus.
There were 10 artist for 6 days of painting. Christopher Holt, John Demspey Rebecca King and I braved the elements and got our feet wet, sometimes wetter than we liked, and enjoyed the glory of sunrise and and the mist covered valleys.
A pretty fantastic time that ended with an auction overlooking Grandfather Mountain. They raised over $20,000 for the Stepping Stones Program.
