The Crossnore School Crossnore, NC

JULY 21, 2013

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.
