John McEwen's family allowed the Chestnuts to paint on their farm along the Duck River in Williamsport, and he volunteered last night be our bartender. I need to find out who did the catering. The food was delicious and as beautiful as the paintings.
Did you know that the Duck River was featured in the February 2010 National Geographic magazine as one of top four places on EARTH to find the most biodiversity in one cubic foot? According to the U.S. Geological Survey, the Duck River is one of three hot spots for fish and mussel diversity in the entire world.
The Duck River is the fresh water source for more than a quarter million people living in Tennessee.
I was thrilled the owner of Fairmont purchased the painting I did of Fairmont called "In the Land of Cotton." It just feels right that this painting should hang in the home that inspired it. Thank you Dr. Pulliam!
The art show and sale continues today through 7pm and again tomorrow from 10am-4pm.
