“From the many years of participation in this event, my wife Coleen and I have developed a special kinship
with the entire area. We have made so many close friends, and have become so acquainted with the area and the people, that when we return each year it is more like a “homecoming”, a reunion and a family
affair than an art event .
This year especially, with the tragedy of the storm, and knowing how the community united, and
immediately began the rebuilding and repairing this area they all love and call home. I am looking forward
to once again painting the beauty of this area that they all love and that draws them together here.”
