Every time I start to write about this weekend, I get all tangled up in the words. I just want to say too much—about the town, the shop, the classes, the people—oh yeah, and the art.
But I can’t talk about the weekend without mentioning two women who made it so special. Jane Powell, owner of Random Arts and the reason a tiny town in western North Carolina (population 700+) attracts some of the best mixed media artists in the country. And Jane Davies, amazing artist, terrific teacher, and all around cool person to hang out with. (Just ask about her chickens…)
Enough with words, though. Here are the results:
Are they done? That’s what Jane would ask, and her answer would be “no.” But I’m saying “yes,” because I could add layers of paint and paper forever – and I’d rather add words.
