HAPPENING NOW...Help Laurel Creek Trail
I love nature and the beauty in our county. Laurel Creek Trail is one of my favorite places. I noticed the volunteers and Board needed some help with upkeep and found that I could use my art to help. I am so proud to be part of Preserving a Picturesque America, a 501c3 that works to preserve natural and historic places through the power of the arts. They have chapters in Colorado, Georgia, Maine, New York, North Carolina, South Carolina and our own Tennessee! Their gallery is Saluda Studios in NC. They are showcasing my art and giving everyone the opportunity to help the Laurel Creek Trail. You can purchase one of my paintings until they are all sold (3 remain as of Jan 30) or just make a donation. It's a blessing to be able to help just a little. The link below will get you started!!!
