Today I am organizing my paints and canvas and paper to return to the Virginia mountaints and the magical place called Nimrod Hall ,an artist painting camp. You can learn more by visiting the website created by its owner Laura Loe, a wonderful artist and person. Just type in Nimrod Hall and you will find it.
Many artist and art teachers have been coming here for years and years. No air conditioning may deter lots of people, but the love of the place does not stop us from going and sleeping to the humming of the box window fans. We eat when the cow bell rings and paint and paint until we are exhausted.
My sister Rosann Hargrove, an art teacher now retired, drives to meet me from Louisville, Ky. It is a good bonding time for us. Everyone needs a good sister and I am lucky to have one. While she is a realistic painter, she is my "go to" person for critiques when i need them.
