In the mountains! That’s where I will be this Memorial Day weekend as part of Spring Arts in the Park. I’m honored to be selected as one of 100+ artists and makers to be a part of the 47th annual Spring Arts in the Park in Blue Ridge, Georgia. I’ve been a member of the Blue Ridge Arts Association for two years now and this will be my first time attending this festival. There will be new paintings of horses, wine, florals, mountains and more!. I plan to sketch or paint live both days, so follow me (@lsjart) on instagram for when I’ll be hosting demos.Read more: Spring Arts in the Park – 47th Annual, 2023, Blue Ridge, Georgia May 28th – 29th
I love the mountains in this area. When I hike to an overlook or take in a mountain view, I am inspired by all the things they represent to me. Mountains for me are a metaphor for serenity, possibility and adventure. On a deeper level, they represent the journey we travel in life, going from the known into the unknown so we can grow.
